Headshot Kimberly Lowe

Kimberly's research focuses on the development of transnational humanitarian activism and international humanitarian law in twentieth-century Europe.

Her first book project analyzes the International Red Cross movement’s revision of international humanitarian rights discourse after the First World War. Her second book project examines the effect of decolonization on the International Red Cross Movement from 1947 to 1977, decades during which this traditionally Eurocentric movement asserted its relevance to post-colonial regimes and anti-colonial liberation movements in a rapidly changing geo-political landscape. 

She holds a PhD in History from Yale University, an MA and MPhil in History from Yale University, and a BA in History from Pepperdine University.
