Short Biography:

Dr. Lastra teaches courses on the arts of medieval Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Islamic world. Her research focuses on northern Spanish art and society in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, addressing questions of urbanization, pilgrimage, and the dynamics of socially and religiously pluralistic communities. She has published in Studies in Iconography and is currently working on a book, On Art and Authority: A Biography of Medieval Carrión de los Condes, which explores the urbanization and artistic production of a prominent medieval city along the pilgrimage the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. She also employs digital technologies to expand the means by which we study and present art objects and monuments. Her web resource RomanesqueSpain.com provides digital access to sites in northern Spain through three-dimensional modeling and gigapixel photography. In 2015-16, she was the Swarzenski Fellow in the Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and previously held Fulbright and Casa de Velázquez fellowships in Madrid.
