Ashley Werlinich is an English Literature doctoral student and teaching fellow at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  She is interested in the intersections between 17th century natural philosophy, medicine, and drama—primarily in considering how these intersections can help us understand questions of body and embodiment in early modern literature. In addition to her work as a graduate teaching fellow, Ashley also works as a rare books and special collections instructor with Wilson Library Special Collections.
