In my first book, The Sleep of Behemoth: Disputing Peace and Violence in Medieval Europe, 1000-1200 (Ithaca, 2013) I used discourses of peacemaking to illuminate clerical self-fashioning and changing lay-clerical relationships in western Europe.  My new research includes a study of state formation in late medieval England and France envisioned through changes in personhood and social networks.  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.
