ILLUMINATING THE LAITY:
ILLUSTRATED VERNACULAR MANUSCRIPTS IN THE LATEMIDDLE AGES
How did illustrations in vernacular manuscripts reflect educational programmes for lay readers, notably those for women and children? Can we discern in them the respective contributions of authors, patrons and artists? Were there regional habits and styles of such pedagogic visuality in different parts of Europe? These are some of the questions which this session seeks to explore.

Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture aims to explore how the complexities of being in time find visual form. Crucial to this undertaking is accounting for how, from prehistory to the present, cultures around the world conceive of and construct their present and the concept of presentness visually. Through scholarly writings from a number of academic disciplines in the humanities, together with contributions from artists and filmmakers, Contemporaneity maps the diverse ways in which cultures use visual means to record, define, and interrogate their historical context and presence in time.See more details >
