Marie Pellissier works on early American women's intellectual history, and is particularly interested in cookbooks. She received her MA in Public History from Loyola University Chicago. While at Loyola, she was one of the co-creators of Explore Common Sense, a digital critical edition of the first British edition of Thomas Paine's famous pamphlet (www.explorecommonsense.com). Marie received her BA in History from Boston College. While there, she built a digital critical edition and online exhibit of the Elizabeth Capell cookbook, a late seventeenth-century manuscript cookbook from Boston College's Special Collections (https://mediakron.bc.edu/capellmanuscript).
