She is also the author of Dairy Queens : The Politics of Pastoral Architecture from Catherine de’ Medici to Marie-Antoinette (Harvard University Press, 2011), and a co-author of Meltdown : Picturing the World’s First Bubble Economy (Harvey Miller/Brepols, 2020), which is related to an exhibition that she co-curated on the 1720 Mississippi and South Sea bubbles for The New York Public Library.
