New Perspectives on Urban Entertainment in the Middle Ages
29th Annual Conference of the Center for Medieval Studies
Fordham University, Lincoln Center, New York City: Saturday, April 4, 2009
Laura Weigert is associate professor of art history at Rutgers University and specializes in Northern European art of the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. Her research focuses on the interaction between visual images and their architectural and ritual settings in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and includes the study of manuscript illumination, prints, panel painting, and textiles. Her publications include: Weaving Sacred Stories: French Choir Tapestries and the Performance of Clerical Identity (Cornell University Press, 2004); a co-authored book, Judith et Holpherne (2003), and a exhibition catalogue, La Vie de Staint Etienne et la cathédrale d’Auxerre (2000), as well as articles and book chapters on tapestries, painted cloths, and images of mystery plays. Her current project, “Images in Action: the Theatricality of Franco-Flemish Art” explores the complex relationship between large-scale visual imagery and theatrical performance in late medieval France and Flanders.
