At the moment, Smith is at work on a new Gévaudan-related project dealing with the issues of political corruption, scandal, and publicity on the eve of the French Revolution; he has also developed an interest in the eighteenth century’s discovery of “modernity” as a new mode of being.

Smith has taught courses on the French Revolution, France in the Age of Reason, Late Medieval and Early Modern France, Eighteenth-Century Europe, Aristocratic Identity in the Atlantic World, 1550–1865, The Age of Louis XIV, and a variety of graduate seminars on early-modern Europe and France.
