Class in Session: Images of Pupils and Teachers in the Middle Ages

The Student Committee of the International Center of Medieval Art is a group that seeks to give a voice to all students in medieval art history. For the 2009 Congress at Kalamazoo, we are sponsoring a session that focuses on depictions of medieval education and the transmission of knowledge from teacher to pupil. From the home to the schoolroom to the university, how do images of medieval pupils and their teachers contribute to a clearer understanding of medieval education in practice?

As a committee that addresses student concerns, we would like to cultivate progressive scholarship and we welcome contributions with interdisciplinary approaches. We especially encourage scholars early in their careers to submit papers on the topic of education in medieval art of any period and medium.

Please submit your abstracts (no more than 300 words) for a 15-20 minute paper, along with a completed Participant Information Form, to session organizer Julia Finch ( or by the deadline of September 15. Earlier submissions are appreciated. Participant Information Forms can be found at
