Description

The Medieval Foremothers Society is pleased to announce that we will be honoring art historian Annemarie Weyl Carr at the 2015 Kalamazoo in two sessions: In Honor of Annemarie Weyl Carr I: Women as Artists and Patrons and In Honor of Annemarie Weyl Carr II: Visualizations of Mary, East and West. Professor Carr well deserves to be honored as a medieval Foremother for her research on women in Byzantium, her teaching on medieval women artists, patrons, and religious, and her mentoring of numerous successful women medieval art historians. In addition, she has played a strong leadership role in the discipline of medieval art history.

The first session focuses on women as makers and commissioners of medieval visual images, resonating with the early phase of feminist art history to which Prof. Carr contributed with her all-important article in the Feminist Art Journal.
