My general field of study is early modern Europe, with particular emphasis on early modern France and especially the French Revolution. My past research has focused primarily on popular politics and social activism during the French Revolution: concentrating first on religion, gender, and popular culture; and then, on gender dynamics within families and revolutionary politics. My current project examines foreign radicals who came to France during the revolutionary era. I am also exploring how the French revolutionaries imagined the foreign and defined themselves via their project of revolutionary expansion abroad. General interests: social theory, gender theory, social‑cultural history of early modern Europe, culture and politics in the eighteenth‑century transatlantic world.
