About Me

From 2021-2022, she served as a conference liaison 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.
