Miranda Sachs is a historian of Modern European History with a particular emphasis on French History and the history of childhood. She teaches introductory courses on these topics as well as seminars on the social and cultural history of Europe and on youth culture.
Her research examines the formation of childhood and youth in nineteenth- and twentieth-century France. Her book manuscript entitled Contesting Childhood in Third Republic France considers how attempts to protect and educate working-class children ultimately perpetuated differences in the experience of childhood. She has also contributed to the edited volume France in the Era of Global War.
Dr. Sachs received her Ph.D. from Yale University in 2017. Prior to coming to Denison, she taught at the College of William and Mary.
