Series Editor

Catherine E. Karkov

My research centres on early medieval art, especially Anglo-Saxon art, with a particular focus on questions of voice, gender, identity, and their relationship to the formation of nations, nationalism and the postcolonial Middle Ages. My most recent work is concerned with materials and materiality–of stone, of landscape and of text–and with theories and histories of the book. I am also interested in questions of the display, interpretation and preservation of tangible and intangible heritage and the impact these have on the formation of cultures and disciplines.
