The Medieval Cyborg featured in The Brown Daily Herald

Michelle Oing '07 recent talk, The Medieval Cyborg: Performing Objects in the Late Middle Ages was featured in the April 8th edition of the Brown Daily Herald. Her talk argued for a more critical understanding of medieval and early modern conceptions of mimesis through an examination of a range of figural objects: bust reliquaries, moveable sculptures of Christ and the saints, mobile effigies, and puppets and automata. Her lecture was part of the yearlong, Sensory Series, presented through the Department of the History of Art and Architecture.
