Medieval culinary history; history of science, medicine, and technology; medieval material culture; race and transcultural studies
Eileen's research considers recipes as sites of intersection between medieval natural philosophical theory and common practice. While her primary research interest lies in medieval recipe traditions, and culinary recipes in particular, more broadly she is interested in the many ways the history of science, medicine, and technology manifests in medieval material culture.
Other interests include the body, medieval citation practices, the concept of technique, medievalism, and the digital humanities.
