Anne D. Hedeman, Judith Harris Murphy Distinguished Professor of Art History, is a scholar of late Medieval and Northern Renaissance art and the history of the book, particularly the illustrations in medieval manuscripts and early printed books. Her research examines the relationships between text and image in vernacular late medival French manuscripts. She studies how pictures in illuminated manuscripts explain and translate classical stories to late medieval French readers. Her book in progress, Virtual Translation and the First French Humanists, analyzes this dynamic in works owned or made by three early fifteenth-century French humanists. She is the author of several scholarly monographs, including Imagining the Past in France, 1250-1500 (2010) and Translating the Past: Laurent de Premierfait and Boccaccio's "De casibus" (2008).
