Medieval Women: Subjects and Makers of Art Roundtable with Jeffrey Hamburger, Madeline Caviness and Alexandra Gajewski
What do we know about medieval women artists? Why does anonymous have to be a man? How involved were medieval female patrons and did they have enough cultural references to have meaningful input? How were rebellious acts by female saints understood in the Middle Ages? What is the trouble with Mary? These questions are all a part of a round table discussion, which aims to introduce the subject of medieval women and which was organised in conjunction with the upcoming digital exhibition entitled Medieval Women: Subjects and Makers of Art (25 February - 31 March).
