I study religion and society in the central Middle Ages, with a focus on problems of social order and community formation that accompanied the rise of cities.  My first book, The Sleep of Behemoth: Disputing Peace and Violence in Medieval Europe, 1000-1200 (Ithaca, 2013) traced attitudes to these changes through discussions of what peace meant and who was responsible for it.  More recent research examines how emerging social groups exploited the acoustic environment to make claims over space and time in medieval cities.  I am also starting work on a global history of the color blue: its social meanings, commercial networks and cultural appropriations between the ancient world and modernity.
