About Me

Lindsey Harris is a doctoral candidate at Tulane University. Her dissertation focuses on the ARC, ICRC and JDC’s transnational nursing networks in central and eastern Europe during the interwar period. She holds a M.A. in History from Tulane University and a B.A. in Political Science from Loyola University New Orleans. For the 2021-2022 academic year, she is working as an independent contractor for SHAFR. Ms. Harris served as an Instructor in the Fall of 2020 for HISE-2910-01: The Cold War. Her goal as a historian is to examine history as an active process of forgetting and remembering. Her work emphasizes the use of correspondences and humanitarian aid reports to rediscover narratives on women leaders who are omitted from the historical record.
