I am currently working on two new projects. The first is a history of the revolutions in Southern Europe between 1780 and 1830 (Italy, Spain, and Portugal), exploring the interconnections between constitutions, liberalism and imperial dominations in the region from a gender perspective. The second project investigates the material and immaterial spaces of identity-building in Italy with a particular focus on the shaping of the European cultural capital of Milan between 1796 and 1848.
I lecture and supervise for the History Tripos Part 1 papers 17 and 18 on Modern European History and papers 19 and 20 on History of Political thought.
For Part 2, I teach the Specified Subject "Rethinking Europe from the Mediterranean Shores, 1796-1914". I also teach the MPhil Option "The Modern Mediterranean"
For the History and Politics tripos, I convene the Part 2 course HP3.
I welcome MPhil and PhD dissertations on Modern Italian and Mediterranean intellectual and political history
