My research and writing examines themes situated between art history, early modern history and religious studies, focusing on the visual culture of early modern Spain. I am currently working on a book manuscript tentatively entitled The Age of Sanctity: Child Martyrs in Early Modern Spain. This work considers the ways in which family anxieties, perceptions of alterity, and religious violence intersected with the development of the cults and images of a series of child martyrs during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Since 2017, I am a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in SACRIMA. As part of the team, I work on the creation of a digital map of contested early modern sacred images, and of a digital library of early modern texts on sacred art, with special responsibility for the Iberian context.
