Her current research focuses on cross-cultural encounters, proto-ethnography, memory, and the experience of violence in the sixteenth-century Habsburg Empire. She is also interested in questions of material and visual culture, religious and cultural identities, and theorizing colonialism in the early modern era. This work has been supported by grants from the American Academy in Berlin (Nina Maria Gorrissen Fellowship), John Carter Brown Library (NEH Fellowship), the Huntington Library (Barbara S. Thom Fellowship), the Graves Foundation (ACLS Award for Outstanding Teaching), the Fulbright Program (Austria), and the Woodrow Wilson Institute (Postdoctoral Humanities Fellowship at Northwestern University).
