Professor Kinias receives the Medieval Academy’s Olivia Remie Constable Award

Professor Erica Kinias is one of just four recipients of the 2022 Olivia Remie Constable Award. Sponsored by the Medieval Academy of America, this prize supports the research of early-stage Medieval scholars in honor of the former MAA Fellow, Olivia Remie Constable (1961-2014).

Professor Kinias was granted the Constable Award for the project, “Documentation and Analysis of Paintings at the Monastery of Saint-Baptiste de Moncel )1300-1650.” The prize will fund her travel to France to photograph and conduct an art-historical analysis of the fourteenth-century wall paintings in the monastic refectory. Kinias’ analysis contributes to a larger project coordinated by the Club du Vieux Manoir — the current owners of the Abbey of Moncel — and the Laboratoire de Recherche des Monuments Historiques in the documentation and preservation of this important site. Congratulations, Professor!
