“Professor Mori’s research interests lie in the “new” political and cultural histories of 17th and 18th century Britain and Europe, which includes topics from the infrastructure of early modern royal courts and the social dimensions of diplomatic ritual to chapbooks, London fortune-telling and astrology.

She is the author of William Pitt and the French Revolution, 1785-1795Britain in the Age of the French Revolution, 1785-1820 and The Culture of Diplomacy: Britain in Europe, 1750-1830. She prepares students for fields in early modern British and/or European history with an 18th century focus. Her present work lies at the intersection of book history, print culture, urban history and popular culture, and is funded by a SSHRC Insight grant. The project title is ‘Everyday Nature in English Popular Print, 1660-1800.’ She welcomes applications for graduate work in these and related fields. Additional research interests lie in gender and legal history.”
