Emily received her B.A. in History and French and Francophone Studies at Carleton College in 2018. She studied the memory of the Algerian War in monuments and memorials throughout France and conducted oral histories with female descendants of the Harki community. Her research interests include memory transmission as a way to combat victimhood, immigration in France, exile, and 20th and 21st Century Maghrebi literature and cultural history.
