My interest in 18th-century Russian studies has been primarily devoted to Ekaterina Romanovna Dashkova. Among other studies devoted to her life and works, I have compiled and annotated the French edition of Dashkova’s autobiography, Mon histoire, including the letters of Catherine II (Paris: L’Harmattan, 1999). More recently, I have published her biography, Dashkova: A Life of Influence and Exile (Philadelphia: American Philosophical Society, 2008).
