Margins and Monsters with Sherry Lindquist

March 17th, 2022

Join our founder and host Sandra Hindman as she discusses the monstrous, marginalia and determining the center with Sherry Lindquist, co-author of Medieval Monsters: Terrors, Aliens, Wonders. This interview coincides with the topic of our Chicago gallery exhibition, “The Margins of Medieval Art: Questioning the Center,” which is open through March 30th. What are Sandra and Sherry’s favorite monsters? What determines if an image or subject is “central” to a manuscript folio or pushed to its borders? How does gender, sex, and “monsterizing” play a role in creating margins that frame, subvert, or support the center? Find out on this episode of the Les Enluminures podcast.
