Research Interests

My primary emphasis is in revolutionary American socio-political and legal discourse and its place within the wider Atlantic world.

Currently I am working on two projects, one tracing the development of custom in eighteenth-century Anglo-American legal argumentation and the other analyzing insults and how they functioned rhetorically during the revolutionary crisis.
