Professor of Modern History


Forschungsinteressen und Arbeitsgebiete

I am a historian of modern Western Europe in the world. More specifically, I focus on the transnational entanglements and global contexts that have shaped French and Portuguese societies in the twentieth century. I have a strong interest in understanding decolonization and how it affected Europe and the wider world. In terms of approaches or fields, I have worked on the history of ideas, political and social movements, migrations, and memories. I have dabbled in urban history and film history, and I hope to learn about how to write language(s) into histories of empire, resistance, and globalization in the future.
