Lindsay Shepherd Cook Visiting Assistant Professor of Art

Lindsay Cook teaches medieval art and architecture. She earned her M.A., M.Phil., and Ph.D. from the Department of Art History & Archaeology at Columbia and her B.A. in Art History and French from Vassar. Her research focuses on the intersection of medieval architectural and institutional history in Paris and its environs, particularly centered on Notre-Dame of Paris. Invested in the digital humanities, she has contributed to Mapping Gothic France, Chant Manuscripts, Life of a Cathedral: Notre-Dame of Amiens, and she is a project member of FAB-Musiconis, an interdisciplinary three-year grant project in medieval musical iconography based at Columbia and the Sorbonne. As a complement to her research, she has coordinated undergraduate study trips to Amiens and Jerusalem for art history travel seminars.
