I’m interested in utilizing interdisciplinary methods and frameworks to investigate economic and social shifts in the early modern period, including the digital humanities, postcolonial theory, the history of books, Marxist theory, globalization studies, gender, sexuality, and performativity studies, as well media studies and investigations of the public versus the private. Currently my work centers on the cultural effects of converting from use to exchange value in the early modern transition from feudalism to capitalism, and the long-term cultural consequences of emerging bourgeois values winning out over Tudor and Stuart aristocratic values.
