Research Interests

Dr Judith Collard studied at Melbourne University where she did a BA(Hons) and an MA in Art History. Her MA dissertation was on The Cult of St Cuthbert: A study of visual and literary expressions of devotion in the Anglo-Saxon and early Norman Periods. Her Ph.D is from La Trobe University, and her topic was Patronage and Representations of the Kings of England in Thirteenth-Century English Art.

Before coming to the University of Otago she taught in undergraduate courses at Monash and Melbourne Universities. She has had visiting research fellowships at the Institute of Historical Research, London University and Melbourne University. Her most recent research has focused on twelfth and thirteenth-century English illuminated chronicles, particularly those by Matthew Paris. She is also working on the place of scientific diagrams in English medieval manuscripts.
