Tulane University Special Collections Researcher Spotlight
Tulane University Special Collections (TUSC) holds primary sources that are invaluable for researchers like Lindsey Harris, PhD candidate in the History Department at Tulane University. In researching her dissertation on transnational nursing networks in the interwar period, Lindsey came across the Amelia Greenwald papers, which helped her explore the role of multilingualism within the nursing profession in interwar Warsaw. The collection allowed her to explore the legacy of imperial partition within the territory that comprised independent Poland, as well as the disconnect between the Polish Government’s nationalist sentiments and the less parochial views held by Jewish professionals in the nursing and medical fields in interwar Warsaw.
Watch Lindsey describe her process working with TUSC in this video produced by Alan Velazquez, Digital Scholarship Unit Coordinator, with help from Agnes Czeblakow, Head of Research Services at TUSC, and Josh Windham, Library Associate in Media Services
