About my book: I am currently working as an independent scholar and writing a book that is provisionally entitled Anglo-French Encounters: National Identity and Graphic Satire, c. 1688-1815. My research interests mostly focus on eighteenth-century painting and prints; on graphic satire and early modern print culture; on material culture and Anglo-French artistic and intellectual exchange in the long eighteenth century. Some of the images I write about look like this:

Zoffany, Plundering the King’s Cellar, oil on canvas, 1794 published as a print in 1795. (Wadsworth Atheneum, USA)
