Abstract

In connection with the broad theme of Leeds, ‘Food, Feast & Famine’, the Graduate Student Committee of the International Center for Medieval Art’s panel examines the roles of food, dining, and production in the visual culture of all periods and geographies of the Middle Ages. Food is a thread that links together religious and secular, elites and peasants; this is reflected in the two papers. Amy Jeff’s work addresses Last Supper iconography and English kingship; Sophie Kelly wil consider the three-faced Janus figure in 13th- and 14th-Century English Calendar Illumination.
