Louis has wide-ranging historical interests but his main focus at Harvard is early modern cultural and intellectual history.  In particular, he examines the ways in which people in a number of European countries in this period attempted to understand and respond to large-scale calamities and disasters.  His other research interests include Renaissance festivals and polemical pamphlet literature.
