Welcome to my Homepage

I am maîtresse de conférence at the University Versailles Saint-Quentin since September 2018. My resarch deals with the beginning of printing in Italy and Europe, the circulation of objects, texts and people it induced, and the development of this new cultural industry at the end of the 15th century and the beginning of the 16th century.

I did my Ph.D under the supervision of Élisabeth Crouzet-Pavan at Paris-Sorbonne University. It is entitled "Venice and the printing world, 1469-1530" and was defended in 2016. It was published in 2018 by Champ Vallon under the title La Venise des livres 1469-1530.

I am also admnistrator of the Early Modern Book Project with Louis-Gabriel Bonicoli (University of Albany) et Alissar Levy (ENC).
