Areas of Interest

Medieval intellectual history; history of science, medicine, and technology; medieval material culture; critical race studies


Eileen's research considers recipes as sites of intersection between medieval natural philosophical theory and common practice throughout the Mediterranean. While her primary research interest lies in medieval recipe traditions, more broadly she is interested in the many ways the history of science, medicine, and technology manifests in medieval material culture. Eileen's dissertation, "Structuring Nature: Peacocks, Food, and the History of Science, 1250-1550" is a comparative analysis of medieval culinary recipes, artisanal epistemologies, and the history of science.
