Jennifer Park is assistant professor of English, specializing in early modern literature, at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She received her B.A. from Yale University and her Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 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 race-making in text and performance: the first, Race and the Recipe Imaginary, examines recipes, crafting epistemologies, and racial formations in early modern England; the second examines games, science, and race-making through interactive texts and technologies in seventeenth-century England.
