Location: CRASSH, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge
This conference will help shape new understandings of old barriers: the richly carved and painted screens which filled medieval churches. It will interest art historians, historians of religion and conservators.
The conference is being convened by the Cambridge University Medieval Panel Painting Research Centre, of which the Hamilton Kerr Institute is a partner, with the support of the Centre for Research in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CRASSH), University of Cambridge.
The conference comes at the end of a three-year study on East Anglian medieval screens based at the Hamilton Kerr Institute and funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
Registration for the conference will open in the New Year.
