Position title: Ph.D. Student; Teaching Assistant
Claire Kilgore is a Ph.D. student studying late medieval art and religious practice. She received her Masters in Art History from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2017, where her thesis examined the materiality and optics of rock crystal reliquaries belonging to the Aachen treasury. Her current interests center on the materiality, practice, and reception of late medieval religion and religious objects by women. Her research investigates these questions through the study of dress and textiles as well as depictions of female bodies, anatomy, and maternity.
