Credentials/career path

Dr. Joni M. Hand is currently Associate Professor of Art History at Southeast Missouri State University. Her research concerns late medieval manuscripts in Northern Europe and female patronage. She is author of the books "Bound for the Midwest: Medieval and Early Modern Religious Manuscripts in the Charles Luce Harrison Collection, Kent Library, Southeast Missouri State University" (Southeast Missouri State University Press, 2017) and "Women, Manuscripts, and Identity in Northern Europe, 1350-1550" (Ashgate, 2013).

Dr. Hand is also a practicing artist working in mixed media, oils, and graphite. Her current work explores physical and metaphysical journeys. She leads the viewer on these pilgrimages through the objects, images, or drawings she incorporates into each piece. The destination of each trip is different for each viewer and for each time the work is viewed. She lives in Cape Girardeau, Missouri with her husband Kevin.
