Brigid Wallace is a graduate student at Lehigh University. I am completing my Master's thesis and continuing to the Ph.D. candidacy. My research encompasses the movement of people and ideas within spaces affected by the fluid nature of condition change. I focus on the French Atlantic and Latin America world during the 18th and 19th centuries. Currently, I am researching free people of color living in Haiti and France in the late eighteenth century when the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizens became a primary political policy in France and how its reception by free people of color in Haiti and France.
