Registration for this Spring’s Public Lecture Course, Britain and the World in the Middle Ages opens today.
In the Middle Ages, the “British Isles” were far from insular. These islands were, in fact, places of exchange, where art, ideas, rare materials and people came together from all over the world. This course examines Britain’s sense of place in that world, as well as its actual place in the world – in other words, image and reality – by examining medieval images themselves. Each of the course’s lectures considers one of five critical themes in Britain’s global experience and imagination, through the exploration of works of medieval art. This series will be convened by Jessica Berenbeim (University of Cambridge) and Lloyd de Beer (British Museum). Register here.
No prior art historical knowledge is necessary.
