Her research interests are rooted in art historical approaches to manuscript studies, with special attention to fifteenth-century medieval devotional books and the complex relationship between text and image. Kristen’s dissertation is focused on the material culture of the Lüneburg Heath cloisters and how text, particularly in the form of the banderole, impacts reading and viewing practices across media.
