My PhD thesis 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.
