Advisor: Dr. Stephanie Leitch
Lacy Gillette studies the impact of print and the coming of the book during the Early Modern period (c. 1470-1750). Her research interests include the visual arts of Northern Europe, the history of dress, and the intersections between social behavior and works on paper.
After completing her BA in Art History and Humanities at Jacksonville University, Lacy pursued an MA in Egyptian Art and Archaeology at the University of Memphis and conducted field work at Amheida located in Egypt’s Dakhleh Oasis in 2013. Lacy has been awarded a Fulbright Research Award for the 2019-2020 academic year. She will be studying at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nurnberg in Erlangen, Germany with the Institute for the Study of the Book. Her research focuses on the material object of the book and she will examine the role of printed illustrations in the construction of sixteenth-century social types.
