My teaching and research are primarily in the history of early modern political thought with a particular focus on the writings of Mary Wollstonecraft, Edmund Burke, David Hume, and the third earl of Shaftesbury. Thematically my work mainly deals with issues surrounding the passions, fanaticism, religious toleration, and censorship.  My current book project is titled Uncivil Mirth: The Politics of Ridicule from Shaftesbury to Paine.
