The Centre for French History and Culture at the University of St Andrews is delighted to announce that its autumn biannual seminar will be given by Dr Rebecca Dixon (University of Liverpool) on Wednesday 11 November 2015, from 5.30pm. Dr Dixon’s paper is entitled “Spectacular Bodies: Dress and Undress in Wavrin Master Manuscripts”.
Rebecca Dixon is Lecturer in French Studies at the University of Liverpool. Her research concerns literature and visual culture in pre-modern France (mostly 15th – early 16th century), as well as text-image relations, costume and material culture.
The seminar will take place in the New Seminar Room (69-71 South Street), and will be followed by a drinks reception in the Undercroft from 7pm. All are welcome to attend.
