Shannon L. Wearing earned her PhD in 2015 at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, with a dissertation entitled “Power and Style: The Liber Feudorum Maior and the Court of Alfonso II, King of Aragon and Count of Barcelona (r. 1162-1196).” She contributed an entry “The Death of the Patron: Agency, Style, and the Making of the Liber Feudorum Maior,” for Romanesque Patrons and Processes: Design and Instrumentality in Romanesque Europe, ed. Jordi Camps, Manuel Castineiras, John McNeill and Richard Plant, (Routledge, 2018): 327-336. She is presently preparing a book, Image, Stone, and Song: Shaping Royal Identity in Medieval Barcelona (1150-1213), which forms the core of her research project as a Mellon Fellow. Dr. Wearing will look into artistic patronage and courtly culture during the aftermath of the establishment of the Crown of Aragon.
