Current projects
"Emotions, power and the correspondence of Catherine de Medici"
(Australian Research Council Future Fellowship, 2014- )
This project investigates the hitherto under-researched correspondence of Catherine de Medici, who, as a queen and regent, dominated sixteenth-century French politics. This study of the leading female political protagonist of the era will provide new insights into early modern strategies of emotional expression, letter-writing and political power, and a new view of Catherine's own activities.

"Gender, Politics and Materiality in Early Modern Europe, 1500-1800"
(UK Arts and Humanities Research Council-Funded Research Network, 2015-7)
With James Daybell, Svante Norrhem, Nadine Akkerman, Jacqueline Van Gent
The team will work together to examine the gendered nature of power relationships constituted through material forms, exchanges and practices within a transnational early modern framework. It analyses physical objects and material texts as well as the social and cultural practices and spaces in which they were produced, consumed, exchanged and displayed. A key aim of the network is to foster a dialogue between academics from history, literature, material culture, art history, and archivists and curators to share practices in a mutually beneficial way for those studying and displaying collections and archives.
