Meg’s current book project, tentatively titled A Living Church: Building the English Parish, 1150-1300, examines the social and spatial developments in parish churches in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, demonstrating that these buildings were a vehicle for the expression of new religious and social identities. With James Alexander Cameron, Meg organised the conference Towards an Art History of the Parish Church in 2017; she is presently editing transactions for the conference which will be published with Courtauld Books Online in fall of 2021. Meg is Honorary Web Officer of the British Archaeological Association, web and editor manager of the Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture in Britain & Ireland, and serves on the IDEA+ Committee of the International Center of Medieval Art.
