I have just started research with a new professor, Vanesa Miseres, about women and war in Latin America. She will be looking at a broad time period, including the 19 and 20th centuries, to see what role women played in armed conflicts. To have more background information, women in war in Europe and Asia will also be studied, but the focus will then be Latin America. I will begin by compiling the bibliography, as well as working on summaries of various sources. In the past I worked with Dr. Tala Jarjour in the music department. I transcribed/summarized/sometimes translated historical documents from the 19th century about French colonialism in the Middle East, specifically about religious conflict.
This summer I received a Nanovic internship to go to Paris. There I helped Col. Peter Herrly, an ND grad, to organize a political conference about the rise of the Russian military. I lived in downtown Paris and frequently went to the SciencesPo campus where I worked with their faculty to invite people/logistics. I worked with speakers and attendees in both French and English to ensure everyone knew what would happen the day of the conference, as well as various other events/dinner surrounding it. The Nanovic funded my life in Paris as I worked on my French and general professional skills.
