Profile

"Dr. Lauren Weindling completed her PhD in Comparative Literature at the University of Southern California in May 2017. Her research focuses on early modern drama of England, France, and Italy, although “fuddy-duddy Shakespearean” might describe her best. Her interests include drama’s negotiations with early modern science, particularly discourses of bodily determinism and concerns around the burgeoning scientific method. Her first book project addresses issues of identity and affinity in relation to early modern discourses about the workings of blood."
