A visual culture scholar, Neri’s research looked at the role of images in the construction of knowledge about nature during the early modern period (1400–1800). She published her book The Insect and the Image: Visualizing Nature in Early Modern Europe, 1500–1700 in 2011 …

Friends and colleagues can pay their respects at a memorial service at 2pm, Saturday, November 5, at Summers Funeral Home, 1205 W. Bannock St., in Boise. Instead of flowers, the family asks you make a donation to The Idaho Foodbank.
