About Dr. Cohen: Meredith Cohen obtained her Ph.D. from Columbia University in 2004 and joins UCLA after having spent a decade conducting research and teaching at universities in England and France. She specializes in the art, architecture, and urban development of high medieval Europe (c. 1000 – c. 1450). Her research and teaching focus on issues concerning the social and ideological functions of art and architecture, production and reception, as well as historiography. In 2010, she curated (with Xavier Dectot) an exhibition on medieval Paris at the Musée national du Moyen-Âge—Thermes de Cluny, titled Paris, ville rayonnante (“Paris, Rayonnant City”) (ed. RMN, 2010). She has published articles on the Sainte-Chapelle in Speculum and Res. Other articles and book reviews have dealt with medieval Paris, the “Court Style,” and French royal history. Meredith Cohen is completing a monograph on the Sainte-Chapelle and royal architecture in thirteenth-century Paris.
