I’m a PhD student in the English department at Mt. San Antonio College. My research centers on food in eighteenth-century British literature to argue that the culinary trends of the period reflect, compete against, or parallel the multiple and shifting aesthetic discourses of the same period. More generally, I’m interested in the encounters between Britain and India during the long eighteenth-century, digital humanities, and text visualizations.
