MA, Art History
Caitlin Schwarz completed her undergraduate work at Case Western Reserve University, located in Cleveland, Ohio, in 2017. She received her BA in Art History as well as Anthropology with a specialization in Archaeology. Her research interests lie in the art of the high to late medieval periods of the Western world and specifically in how the holy and secular human body is depicted and therefore perceived. Through her internships at the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Western Reserve Historical Society she has also fostered an interest in material culture and costume history with a focus on Victorian mourning customs and how death does not always sever the ties between those of the living and the deceased.
