Research Interests

I am a historian of global francophone history in the 20th century with a particular interest in empire and decolonization, intellectual history, and print and reading culture. My previous work has focused on the social history of ideas and the role of print media in postcolonial identity formation as well as transnational revolutionary movements, global solidarity, and the role of intellectuals and writing as part of both Marxism and decolonization.
