Areas of Research

Religious practice, culture, and literature of the French Counter-Reformation; Religious performance in the Christian tradion
My work combines archival research methods with the literary sensibilities of French studies and conceptual tools drawn from performance theory to offer an anthropological history of priestcraft in early modern France. More generally, my research interests concern the religious practice, culture, and literature of the French Counter-Reformation, as well as French theater history and drama under the Ancien RĂ©gime.
