Research Summary
My main area of interest is the cultural and intellectual history of Europe between the late 18th and the early 20th centuries, as well as historical theory and historiography. Most of my work is in the field of Italian, French, German and Habsburg History, with a particular focus on the transnational flow of ideas, goods and people. I am director of UCL's Centre for Transnational History. A specific field of research is European music theatre, in particular nineteenth-century Italian and German opera.
