Research Interests

My M.A. Thesis explores how the coverage of the American Revolution in the francophone press fit into ongoing debates about political thought in 1770s France. I study eighteenth-century France in the Atlantic and European worlds, and my research interests include print culture, intellectual history, and political imagination.
