Biography

Jeanie's dissertation project looks at reredoses, which are walls covered in sculpture behind the high altar in English churches. She is interested in the medieval function of these objects, as well as how they have been reused and reinterpreted in later centuries to create idealized narratives.

Jeanie earned her BA from Swarthmore College and her MA from the Courtauld Institute of Art. At the Courtauld she studied Gothic architecture and church furnishings. After her master’s, Jeanie worked at the Norton Simon Museum, as a Samuel H. Kress Foundation Interpretive Fellow at the Portland Art Museum, and as a curatorial assistant at the Clark Art Institute.
