Office Location:  Sidney Smith Hall, Room 3072


Professor Mori’s research interests lie in the “new” political and intellectual histories of 17th and 18th century Britain and Europe, which include topics from the infrastructure of the early modern court and the social dimensions of diplomatic ritual to the mentalités of rioters, the political economy of the Scottish Enlightenment and natural 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 deals with the connections between popular culture and the history of science in the Enlightenment. Additional research interests lie in the history of the book, gender history and legal history.
