I am a historian of early modern Rome. My research explores a wide range of topics in political, social and cultural history from artists’ organizations to urban space. My current project, City of Men: Service and Servants in Baroque Rome, explores male domestic service and the construction of masculinity in a city with many more men than women. My previous books are Civic Politics in the Rome of Urban VIII (Princeton UP, 1992) and Brokers of Public Trust: Notaries in Early Modern Rome (The Johns Hopkins UP, 2009).
