Patrick Luiz Sullivan de Oliveira is a cultural and social historian whose work focuses on modern Europe, with some forays into the Atlantic World. His current research traces the emergence of a thriving aeronautical culture in France before the advent of the airplane, examining how ballooning became a patriotic endeavor that people from all political stripes could get behind as a way to champion French modernity. His other research interests include urban history, the press, and visual culture (particularly caricatures).
