Research

My dissertation examines representations of Hell, devils, and demons within fifteenth-century Northern European painting and illuminated manuscripts. Specifically, my project investigates images of demon bodies and behaviors which convey the complex intelligence, sexualities, and personalities of devils. By combining visual analysis and historical context with recent theories of animal studies, posthumanism, and monster theory, I hope to shed new light on demons and devils within the late medieval imagination.
