Dr. Joni Hand, Assistant Professor of Art History, has had her book, "Women, Manuscripts and Identity in Northern Europe, 1350-1550", published by Ashgate Publishing. Professor Hand sheds light on the reasons women of the Valois courts commissioned devotional manuscripts. Visually interpreting the non-text elements-portraits, coats of arms and marginalia- as well as the texts, Hand explores how the manuscripts were used to express the women's religious, political and/or genealogical concerns.
