Sarah Griffin

portraitSarah is a DPhil student researching the scientific visual culture of the fourteenth century, specifically in the diagrams of Opicinus de Canistris (1296- c.1354), a priest working for the Avignon Papacy. As her work compares how two-dimensional schematisations and three-dimensional instruments were used to visualise time, from both an astronomical and theological perspective, she is particularly interested in the impact of navigating 3D digital object renderings in learning.

As the Research Assistant representing Art History, Sarah liaises between course convener and collection to introduce the platform into an undergraduate classroom environment.
