Kathryn M. Rudy is a Professor in art history at the University of St Andrews. She has written extensively about late medieval manuscripts and is best known for her work on ‘Dirty Books’, for which she measured signs of wear in manuscript margins in order to quantify reader reception. See her TED talk on this topic! Before coming to academia in 2011, she was curator of illuminated manuscripts at the National Library of The Netherlands. She holds degrees from Cornell, Columbia, and Toronto, and she has held fellowships, inter alia, at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts, the Warburg, the Bodleian Library, the Getty, the Bauhaus University Weimar, and Trinity College Dublin. Her most recent books include Postcards on Parchment: The Social Lives of Medieval Books (2015) and Piety in Pieces, published by OBP in 2016.
