The Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement



I am a PhD student in the French section of MMLL and a member of Queens' College. My research examines the material infrastructure of Paris in the late eighteenth century as it relates to the imagination of the city. My project probes the issue of a series of sinkholes in Paris during the last half of the eighteenth century as a focal point in the changing material and imaginary nature of the city. I explore the relationship between the material and imaginary of the city with mobility of migrant workers and tourists in early modern France.


I am interested in the shift of places and 'sites' from places of work and migration to places of leisure and tourism as well as cross-class interactions.
