RESEARCH INTERESTS:

I'm a historian of early modern Rome (1500-1800). My research explores a wide range of topics in political, social, and cultural history from popular politics, print culture, urban space, and legal practices to artists' organizations and men's households. Recently I published the book Brokers of Public Trust: Notaries in Early Modern Rome (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2009). Currently I'm working on Baroque Rome as a "city of men," where males substantially outnumbered females and the clergy held the reins of both domestic and political power.

early modern Italy, Baroque Rome, notaries and notarial documents, history of masculinity
