Key Research Interests and Expertise

My main research interests so far have been focusing on female monastic institutions in early modern Italy and Europe, women's writings (particularly religious writings), and how religious women responded to normative practices implemented by the Catholic church and state, in the decades following the Council of Trent. I have also done research on women's writings in Italy and, more recently, Spain, and on early modern living interiors and the meaning of space and objects in domestic and non domestic worlds.
