Alumnus Receives Medieval Studies Grants for Research on Reims Portal

Published February 3, 2013

Feltman_picArt History alumnus Jennifer Feltman (PhD 2011) received travel grants from The Medieval Academy of America and the Association Villard de Honnecourt for Interdisciplinary Study of Medieval Technology, Science, and Art (AVISTA) to present her paper, “Royal and Clerical Iconography and the Chronology of the Reims Last Judgment Portal, ” at the 48th Annual International Congress on Medieval Studies, May 9-13, 2013.  Her paper will be presented in one of two AVISTA sponsored sessions of papers, “New Studies of the North Transept of Reims,” which she has organized.   These papers will cover the archeology, architecture, stained glass, and sculpture of the north transept of the Cathedral of Reims, and they represent the latest international scholarship on this façade, whose chronology and reception remains contested.  A volume based upon these sessions is being planned for the Ashgate series: AVISTA Studies in the History of Medieval Technology, Science, and Art, which she will edit.  More details on the sessions are available here: http://www.avista.org/category/conferences/
