Kathleen Nolan

Nolan thinks that teaching at Hollins is one of the best jobs in America. She teaches medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque art history. Her scholarly interests include the history of women in the Middle Ages, and the works of art commissioned by women to tell their stories. She recently edited (with Dany Sandron) Arts of the Medieval Cathedrals: Studies on Architecture, Stained Glass and Sculpture in Honor of Anne Prache. Her book, Queens in Stone and Silver: The Creation of a Visual Identity of Queenship in Capetian France (Palgrave 2009), looked at queens’ personal seals and effigy tombs. Her articles and essays have appeared in The Art Bulletin, the Gazette des Beaux-Arts, Studies in Iconography, and Gesta.
