Institution at time of Fellowship

Columbia University

Claire studies the intersections of visual cultures, identities, and faiths in the medieval Mediterranean. Her dissertation examines silk production in Sicily, studying hundreds of textile fragments attributed—or misattributed—to the island, and evaluating their place in historiographies of the global Middle Ages. Her other projects investigate the afterlives of medieval Mediterraneanisms as manifest in modern extremisms, histories of fashion, and neomedieval monuments such as the Cathedral of Mogadishu.

She received the 2024-2025 Paul Mellon Rome Prize in Medieval Studies and is the inaugural fellow of the International Interfaith Research Lab at Teachers College. Her dissertation has also been supported by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and SSRC-Mellon Mays, while her work on extremist appropriations of the Middle Ages has received grants and fellowships from the Medieval Academy of America and RaceB4Race, among others.

She earned an M.Phil. from Trinity College Dublin as a Mitchell Scholar and a B.A. in art history and Italian from Northwestern University, where she studied contemporary art as a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow. She was also Director of Education and Outreach of the nonprofit ART WORKS Projects, where she developed exhibitions and programming to amplify diverse social justice causes across three continents.
