Research

Research Interests:

I specialise in intellectual, political and cultural history, with a focus Southern Europe, the Mediterranean and Italy in the nineteenth century, and on transnational connections and exchanges. I am currently completing a history of the 1820s revolutions of Southern Europe in global context, to be published with Princeton University Press.

I was a member of the Steering committee of a 3 year Leverhulme (link is external)-funded network on “Rethinking Democracy in the Mediterranean 1750-1850”, and holder of a Leverhulme Research Fellowship (link is external) (2013-2014) to work on Southern Europe in the Age of Revolutions. My research interests include:

- Southern Europe and the Mediterranean and their relationship with the rest of the world in the nineteenth century
