My research has focused on early eighteenth-century French fiction and journalism: Abbé Prévost, Montesquieu, Graffigny, Denon as well as Proust. Of particular interest to me are questions of interpretation and reception of early French fiction, and the role of international newsletters in the creation of the Republic of Letters and representations of national character. I teach courses on the Enlightenment, Francophone authors, and French cinema.
