One of the luxuries of studying history, if you’ll indulge me, is the relatively fluid transition between what I do in college and what I do over the summer interruption. This last Spring Quarter, for example, I spent the majority of my time reading books about Low Country iconoclasm for the purpose of writing a 20 page paper — part of a one-on-one directed research class with a brilliant professor. In a word, the paper is about tracing ritual inversion and revolt in Ghent from the mid-fifteenth century to the late sixteenth century, using Peter Arnade’s considerable research on urban particularism.
