Award-Winning Faculty Article
Elizabeth Rodini’s article “The Politics of Marriage in Carpaccio’s St. Ursula Cycle” has been awarded the Best Article Prize for 2013 by Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal.
In announcing the prize, the award’s committee called the article “an excellent example of the possibilities of interdisciplinary scholarship. [Rodini’s analysis] employs deep research into iconography, hagiography, general Venetian history, and Venetian marriage traditions, [exploring…] both the broader social meaning of the painting and its particular resonances in the histories of such families as the Loredan and Barbaro. Her multiple critical frameworks reveal the power and complications of marriage in Venetian society.”
