Report from the Field | Kolarik & Kilgore Conduct Fieldwork in the Alps

This May, Ph.D. Candidates Tania Kolarik and Claire Kilgore drove through the Alps along the Brenner Pass that connected Venice to the German speaking regions of northern Europe to study the cross-cultural exchange that took place during the late medieval period. This research, including a stop at the Abegg-Stiftung textile collection in Riggisberg, Switzerland, to view medieval textiles, will inform both of their respective dissertation projects.
