Dr Jenifer Ní Ghrádaigh is a medieval art historian whose interests are focused on sculptural traditions in Ireland up to the Romanesque period. Recent areas of research include issues such as the role of patrons and artists in the creative process; problems of intentionality, agency and audience; and the role of Irish art in the greater European narrative.
