Margot Steurbaut is a first-year PhD-student with a great interest in Netherlandish stained glass. In 2018, she earned her bachelor’s degree from Antwerp University (Belgium) in Conservation Studies with a specialization in stained glass. She completed her master’s degree in 2020 at the University of York (U.K.) in Stained-Glass Conservation and Heritage Management, with distinction. Her master’s dissertation discussed the role of the cartoon in 17th century stained-glass making and the working relationship between master glass painter and designer. For this, she received the Nicholas Barker Dissertation Prize. Margot also has experience working as a stained-glass conservator. During her time at Rice, she will expand on her work on stained glass and she aspires to connect the art form to other disciplines in art history. Her research interests include: technical art history, the evolution of stained-glass techniques, situating stained glass within the wider narrative of art history.
