Research Interests

My dissertation, “Fractured Nationalism and the Crises of French Identity, 1789-1906,” discusses polemical discourse surrounding major uprisings and cultural flashpoints in modern France. I propose that in producing rival narratives of these events, ideologues created irreconcilable images of the French nation and French identity.
