Research Interests

I have two main areas of research. The first concerns efforts to promote strict standards of moral discipline in French-speaking Reformed communities during the early modern period. This involves analyses of attempts to reform sight, the body and sexuality. I also study religious life in Hungary and Transylvania. My research examines religious pluralism in Hungary and the character of the Hungarian Reformed community during the early modern period.

Teaching and Supervision

I teach undergraduate modules on European history during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. These include the Freshman (Level 1) survey ‘Europe 1500-1700: Power and belief’, and the Honors modules ‘Europe Reformed, 1540-1600’ (List 1) and ‘The Fall and Rise of Early Modern France’ (List 3). At postgraduate level I teach modules on ‘Culture and Religion’ and on ‘Tolerance and Intolerance in Early Modern Europe’ in the MPhil in Early Modern History. I also supervise doctoral research projects on a variety of subjects on religious and cultural history of early modern Europe.
