Dr. Vanessa Lincoln Lambert received her PhD in European History from the University of California, Berkeley in 2013. Since then, she has taught courses on modern French, European and World History at the American University of Paris and Sciences Po, Reims and Paris campuses. Her research has focused on the history of the international peace movement and nineteenth-century projects for European Union, and has been published in the International History Review and by Presses Septentrion. In parallel, she has a long-standing interest in museums and cultural heritage, cultivated through a senior thesis at the University of Chicago on the early development of French museums, years of work in museum education and an internship at the UNESCO World Heritage Center. Her current work seeks to link these two areas of study through a project on the little-discussed restitution of art after World War I, showing how material objects got caught up in the distraught process of political transition after the war.
