INDIVIDUAL FELLOW
University of Oxford
Professor Harrison regularly teaches the survey of European history, women in modern Europe, the Enlightenment and the French Revolution. She also teaches graduate seminars on feminist theory and methodology.  Her first book, The Bourgeois Citizen in Nineteenth-Century France: Gender, Sociability, and the Uses of Emulation, explored the formation of a male bourgeois elite in provincial France. Her second book, Romantic Catholics: France's Postrevolutionary Generation in Search of a Modern Faith examines how lay French women, men, and children practiced their faith, aspiring to create a revitalized Catholicism that could reconcile itself with revolutionary political principles.
