My dissertation, "Vegetable Feelings: Plants, Passions, and Knowledge in Early Modern England," examines the sentient plant as a particularly fertile locus of knowledge production in early modern England. I am interested more broadly in natural history, the history of science, embodiment and gender studies, environmental humanities, critical plant studies, book history, and textual culture.
