Aurèlia Puigdomènech

Graduate Teaching Assistant

 

Aurelia completed her undergraduate degree in History of Art at the Universitat de Barcelona before her MA in Women’s Studies (Humanities) at York. Her PhD thesis, supervised by Dr Ann Kaloski-Naylor, examines contemporary non-devotional images of the Virgin Mary and their meanings of femininity in traditionally Christian societies. In her research, Aurelia investigates what meanings of femininity the Virgin Mary accrues as a secular cultural icon, how the religious imagery of Mary informs secular artistic productions of Mary, and how do non-devotional images of Mary maintain or challenge social norms and constructs around femininity.
