Medieval Art

Maggie Martino is a first-year MA student specializing in medieval art. She earned her BA in English literature from the University of Texas at Austin, but after minoring in art history (and almost earning a second degree), she decided to focus on art that was visual instead of written in her graduate work. She is primarily interested in monumental architecture from the Gothic period, and the ways in which it affected relationships between different socioeconomic classes in the Middle Ages. More specifically, she hopes to analyze the idea of art as a manipulative tool, and the ways in which those in power utilized those tools to their advantage.
