A Conversation with Anne F. Harris, Medieval Art Historian and President of Grinnell College
"Medieval Art 250-1450: Matter, Making, and Meaning" (Oxford UP, 2021)
Oxford University Press 2021
Today I talked to Anne F. Harris. Anne wears two hats: she's a medieval art historian and president of Grinnell College. We talked about her new book Medieval Art 250-1450: Matter, Making, and Meaning (Oxford University Press, 2021), which she co-authored with Nancy M. Thompson. We also discussed the significance and relevance of Medieval art today, the transition from teaching to administration, what it's like to head a premiere liberal arts college in the age of Covid (and all else), and her vision for Grinnell.
