Beautiful Fragments: Medieval Glass, Ceramics, Leather, and Metalwork from the Museum of London

Is a broken artwork useless?
What can only a fragment of something tell us about the medieval past?

The Museum of London and the University of East Anglia invite applications for a three-year, full-time Collaborative Doctoral Award as part of the Beautiful Fragments Project, beginning 1 October 2018.

This PhD research will examine the role of the fragment in understanding the art and visual culture of the later Middle Ages (c.1000-1500), drawing principally on the Museum of London’s vast medieval collections of glass, ceramics, leather, and metalwork. These carefully crafted objects offer an encyclopaedic reservoir of medieval material culture, however their incomplete nature mean they have often been overlooked by art historians. The project will offer the award-holder the skills training, close research supervision, and privileged collections access needed to re-evaluate these fragmentary objects and their value to medieval art history, contributing to a greater understanding of the Museum’s medieval collections prior to their major redisplay in 2023 [...]
