Art of the Spanish Americas

Adam Jasienski, Marilynn Thoma Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Adam Jasienski, Associate Professor in the Department of Art History at Southern Methodist University, has been awarded a one-year Marilynn Thoma Postdoctoral Fellowship to research and write several chapters of a manuscript considering the function of disgust in early modern Catholic martyrological imagery. Jasienski will access special collections, museums, and libraries throughout South America and southern Europe to develop this work on disgust at the intersection of visual medical humanities, affect theory, and early modern religious art.
