I research Restoration and eighteenth-century Britain, with a focus on interactions between literature and social systems. My recent and current work investigates the complicated relationships between discourse and association in a variety of contexts, including the history of science, the rise of political party, maritime circulation, and the public sphere.
My broader intellectual and teaching interests extend from the eighteenth century into the present, including historicism and its discontents, gender and sexuality studies, British colonial and postcolonial literatures, piracy, and the dangers of reading.
