    Graduate Student Lecture Series: “Sensory Piety as Social Intervention in a Mechelen Besloten Hofje”
    Memorial Hall, Room 123
    Guest Speaker: Andrea Pearson | In this lecture, Dr. Pearson will examine a besloten hofje, (“enclosed garden”), a kind of prayer tool, to explore sixteenth-century devotional practices that were mediated through art and the senses. The talk will discuss the relationship between sensory piety, physical disability, monastic reform, and the gendered practice of enclosure. | Biography of Speaker: Andrea Pearson is an Associate Professor of Art History at American University in Washington, DC. She is noted for her revisionist publications on art and gender in the early modern Netherlands, particularly issues of social marginalization, same-sex desire, and physical disability. She has edited Women and Portraits in Early Modern Europe (Ashgate, 2008) and published Envisioning Gender in Burgundian Devotional Art, 1350-1530: Experience, Authority, Resistance (Ashgate, 2005). | For updated and additional information on the Graduate Student Lecture Series:
