About the author
Cátia Rodrigues is a PhD candidate at Royal Holloway, University of London. Her doctoral research, funded by TECHNE/AHRC, focuses on the diverse artistic networks formed by women who became involved with the Pre-Raphaelite Movement in its first stage (1850-1870), not only as painters, but as writers, illustrators, patrons, and models. She aims to explore the extent to which their participation reveals a collective artistic identity, and how their gendered contributions affected the artistic expansion of the movement. Cátia is currently part of the Association for Art History’s DECR Steering Committee, and is the Newsletter Editor for the Women’s History Network.
