A warm welcome to our 2012-2013 CMS/PIMS Distinguished Visiting Scholar Dr. Stella Panayotova! Dr. Panayotova is Keeper of Manuscripts and Printed Books, Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, and also director of the Cambridge Illuminations and Miniare Research Projects. Her interests centre on medieval and early modern manuscript production and illumination, and patronage, as well as on cultural exchanges between Western Europe, Byzantium, and the Islamic world, but also extend to manuscript collecting between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries. She is the author, most recently, of Art, Academia, and the Trade: Sir Sydney Cockerell (1867–1962) (2010) and has edited facsimiles of The Fitzwilliam Book of Hours (2009) and The Macclesfield Psalter (2008), each with extensive commentaries.
PIMS and CMS will organize a couple of events with Dr. Panayotova during her stay in Toronto in the Winter term. For details see the following event posting.
