Research Interests

My research interests focus especially on the intersection of political and diplomatic developments with socio-cultural trends and public opinion, as well as the formation and development of concepts of national characteristics and national stereotypes across political boundaries. I am interested in transnational interactions across Europe in the early modern period, but especially relations between France, the Habsburgs, and the Holy Roman Empire.
