Medieval Portland

Fully Online Capstone next offered: Spring 2019.

The Spring 2018 capstone students had the the opportunity to collaborate with visiting scholar, Maud Perez-Simon (Université Sorbonne Nouvelle - Paris 3), and the online exhibition of their research on a recently acquired book of hours from 1507 will be posted soon.

Medieval Portland houses a database of medieval artworks and manuscripts in Portland collections, and was recently awarded an Artstor Digital Humanities Award. I've developed the database over the last decade with research from students in the University Studies senior capstone program. The site also includes additional features such as a walking map of medieval-inspired local architecture, which was used recently as the basis of a high school trip to explore this facet of our local architecture.
