Gender, Death and Space: Change and Continuity in Text and Image 1550-1650

This project examines the changes and continuities in commemorative spaces in the period marked by the Reformation. With a special focus on woman's place in, and contribution to these developments, the study traces the opportunities opened by a destabilisation of the places for the dead. Suspended between established and emerging beliefs the possibilities for new creative visual and literary engagements that shaped female identity, authorship and patronage are explored.

Supervisors: Professor Sue Wiseman and Dr Isabel Davis.
