My main area of research focuses on the social and cultural history of eighteenth-century France. I have written on fashion and commercial culture in Old Regime France (Sexing la Mode: Gender, Fashion and Commercial Culture in Old Regime France Berg: 2004) and am currently working on a new book on gender, Enlightenment and urban sociability that focuses on Therese Levasseur, the mistress of Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Future research plans include a study of Archibald Hamilton Rowan and French-Irish relations in the 1790s.
Je suis spécialiste de l’histoire sociale et culturelle de la France au 18e siècle. J’ai écrit sur la mode et la culture commerçante de la France de l’ancien régime (Sexing la Mode: Gender, Fashion and Commercial Culture in Old Regime France Berg: 2004), et je travaille actuellement sur un nouveau livre sur le sexe, les Lumières et la sociabilité urbaine qui se focalise sur Therese Levasseur, la maîtresse de Jean Jacques Rousseau. Dans le futur, j’espère travailler sur Archibald Hamiliton Rowan et les rélations franco-irlandais aux années 1790.
