Dr. Stephenie McGucken was awarded her PhD from the University of Edinburgh in 2018. Her thesis dealt with the representation of women in Late Anglo-Saxon manuscripts, considering where, how, and why they were portrayed across a variety of manuscripts, and what such depictions reveal about audiences who used the manuscripts. She founded the Edinburgh Medieval Pigment Project in 2016 to facilitate experimentation with pigments commonly used in the Middle Ages; the project has worked with organisations such as Rosslyn Chapel and the National Galleries of Scotland to provide workshops and advice on using natural dyes. Currently, Stephenie is developing her research on the illustrated Psychomachia in England c. 1000.
