My main area of interest is the cultural and intellectual history of Europe between the late 18th and the early 20th centuries. Most of my work is in the fields of Italian, French, German and Habsburg History, with a specific focus on the transnational flow of ideas, goods and people. A particular field of cross-disciplinary research is European music theatre, in particular nineteenth-century Italian and German opera. For Princeton University Press I am currently completing a book entitled America in Italy. The United States in the Political Thought and the Cultural Imagination of the Risorgimento, 1763-1865. I have started work on a new project entitled Transnational Monarchy. Rethinking the Habsburg Empire, 1804-1918, funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
