Shirin Fozi

Shirin Fozi is Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Medieval Art at Northwestern University (2010-12).  Her dissertation (Harvard University, 2010) addressed the rise of figural tomb effigies in the Holy Roman Empire during the late eleventh and twelfth centuries, arguing that early sculptural effigies present a genre that is distinct in both form and function from its Gothic counterparts.

Shirin is currently working on two additional projects: an exhibition titled “Cross References” (Dumbarton Oaks Museum, March-July 2011), and an edited volume of essays titled “Striking Images: Christ on the Cross and the Emergence of Medieval Monumental Sculpture” (co-edited with Gerhard Lutz and Marietta Cambareri, expected 2011).
