Research

research overview

  • Dr. Gerber's research is focused on the role of law in the social and political development of early modern Europe (1500-1789). His first book,'Bastards: Politics, Family, and Law in Early Modern France' (Oxford University Press, 2012), explores the changing legal condition and practical treatment of children born out of wedlock in France between 1555 and 1789. His second book project investigates the formation of early modern French colonial law and its tendency to disrupt metropolitan legal systems in the second half of the eighteenth century. He is also researching the political uses of terror and the delegitimization of particular forms of violence in the early modern era.
