Teaching Interests

My teaching interests revolve around issues of violence, religion, gender, and culture in early modern European and Mediterranean societies. I teach a range of courses on Renaissance humanism, Reformation movements, European Wars of Religion, European state development, and early modern cultural history. Much of my teaching relates directly to my research on religious violence, gender, and noble culture in early modern France and Tuscany. I am also interested in the comparative thematic study of religious violence, civil conflict, state development, Mediterranean history, and globalization. I previously taught European and global history at Simpson College and Millikin University.
