Network in Canadian History & Environment | Nouvelle initiative Canadienne en histoire de l'environnement
Jack Bouchard serves as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Folger Shakespeare Library where he works with the Before “Farm to Table”: Early Modern Foodways and Culture project, a Mellon-funded collaborative research initiative. He received his PhD from the University of Pittsburgh History Department in 2018. Dr. Bouchard’s research interests involve food history, maritime labour and the environmental history of islands in the early Atlantic. He is currently preparing a manuscript (very) tentatively titled Terra Nova: Food, Water and Work in an early Atlantic World, which offers a new history of the northwest Atlantic in the sixteenth century. Next year Dr. Bouchard will be joining the history department at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, where he will serve as an assistant professor teaching environmental history.
