Aryanna Hyde

Aryanna is a sophomore at BYU majoring in International Relations. She received a Swensen Mentorship from the Maxwell Institute to work with the Women, Travel and Manuscripts research team led by Dr. Kristian S. Heal. The team is working to publish the travel narratives of Helen and J. Rendel Harris. The Harrises travelled to the Middle East between June 1888 and May 1889 to visit biblical sites, visit Quaker missions and collect manuscripts. Aryanna is working to edit and annotate this unpublished narrative, and prepare introductory materials that historicize the events narrated.
