This one might be a little late for us in GMT, but looks a fascinating paper so I thought I should share anyway!

Jennifer Park is assistant professor of English, specializing in early modern literature, at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Her work on the intersections of literature, science and medicine, race, gender, embodiment, and materiality in early modern England has been published in Renaissance and Reformation, Studies in Philology, and Performance Matters. She is currently working on two book-length projects at the intersection of early modern science and racemaking in text and performance/interaction: the first examines early modern recipes, science, and race in early modern English drama; the second examines race-making in the material-textual cultures of games and science in seventeenth-century England.
