Danielle is a PhD candidate in the joint program in History and French Studies. She earned a dual B.A. in Honors History and French & European Studies at Vanderbilt University in 2015. Her senior honors thesis at Vanderbilt focused on the immigration of Harkis and Pieds-Noirs to Marseille in the summer of 1962 and the unequal bureaucratic programs put in place to integrate these two refugee populations. Her current research examines the intimate and oppositional quotidian relationship of police officers and North Africans in a connected Franco-Mediterranean world. Her dissertation, “Controlling the Casbah: Policing North Africans in Marseille and Algiers, 1918-1954," finds the locus of police power in officers’ mapping of racial discrimination onto the physical space of the city and in the police prerogative to interpret and enforce national laws according to local contexts.
