Laurie Nussdorfer

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.
