Breanne Weber

Breanne Weber is a first-year Ph.D. student whose research interests include early modern drama and women’s writing, manuscript and print cultures, ecocriticism and ecobibliography, food studies, and digital humanities. Prior to beginning her Ph.D. studies, Breanne obtained an M.A. in English Literature and a B.A. in English Literature and History from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Much of her M.A. work centered around the publication of late 16th century dramatic texts and the circulation and usage of 17th-century women’s manuscript medicinal and recipe books. In 2015, she co-founded the interdisciplinary Early Modern Paleography Society, a student-led academic organization that works in tandem with the Early Modern Recipes Online Collective and the Folger Shakespeare Library’s Early Modern Manuscripts Online to digitize women’s recipe books and other manuscripts in the Folger’s collection. Breanne was awarded the 2017-2018 Provost’s Fellowship in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences and currently serves as editorial assistant of the Marlowe Society of America newsletter.
