| CV || website || contact |

Caroline Bruzelius works on architecture, sculpture, and urbanism in the Middle Ages. She has published on French Gothic architecture (for example, the abbey church of St.-Denis and Notre Dame in Paris) as well as on medieval architecture in Italy, in particular Naples in the 13th and 14th centuries (in both English and Italian editions). She recently published a book on Franciscan and Dominican architecture, Preaching, Building and Burying. Friars in the Medieval City (Yale U. Press, 2014). Bruzelius has also published numerous articles on the architecture of medieval nuns and architectural enclosure, an area in which she did pioneering work.

Her 1991 catalogue of the Brummer Collection of Medieval Sculpture at Duke, is now being revisited as a series of interactive display installations being developed in collaboration with Mark Olson. She has been awarded numerous grants and prizes, including grants from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Max-Planck Institute (Hertziana Library), and the Fulbright Association. She is former Director of the American Academy in Rome, a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and at the Medieval Academy. Bruzelius is co-Director of a database on images of the monuments in medieval Kingdom of Naples, and is working on two new studies: a book called “The Cathedral and the City,” and a general study of architecture in the Medieval Kingdom of Sicily.

Recently, Bruzelius was featured in an open online course, A voice of their own: Women’s Spirituality in the Middle Ages, part of the research project Paisajes Espirituales funded by the ERC:

Sheila Dillon

Professor of Art History and Classical Studies
| CV || website || contact |

Sheila Dillon received a Ph.D. in Classical Art and Archaeology from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. She teaches courses on Greek and Graeco-Roman art and archaeology. Her research interests focus on portraiture and public sculpture and on reconstructing the statuary landscape of ancient cities and sanctuaries. Her books include The Female Portrait Statue in the Greek World (2010); Ancient Greek Portrait Sculpture: Contexts, Subjects, and Styles (2006), which was awarded the James R. Wiseman Book Award from the Archaeological Institute of America in January 2008; Roman Portrait Statuary from Aphrodisias (2006); and an edited volume A Companion to Women in the Ancient World (2012). Professor Dillon was a member of the Aphrodisias Excavations in Turkey from 1992-2004, has worked at the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on the island of Samothrace, and now spends summers doing fieldwork in Athens. Her current projects include a history of portrait sculpture in Roman Athens, which examines the impact of Roman rule and Roman portrait styles on Athenian portraiture, and a digital mapping project of the archaeology of Athens, a collaborative endeavor centered in the Wired! Lab that involves undergraduate and graduate students at Duke and international colleagues in Athens. Professor Dillon was the Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Archaeology from 2013-2016.

Sara Galletti is an Associate Professor of Art and Architectural History. She received a joint Ph.D. in the History of Architecture and Urbanism from the Université de Paris IV–Sorbonne and the Università IUAV of Venice. Her main field of research and teaching is the history and theory of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century architecture in France. Her first book, “Le Palais du Luxembourg de Marie de Médicis, 1611-1631,” was recently published by Éditions Picard (Paris, 2012). She is currently working on two projects: (1) “Practice into Theory: Philibert Delorme, the Premier Tome de l’Architecture (1567), and the Profession of Architecture in Early Modern France,” which analyses the connections between architectural theory and practice in fifteenth- to seventeenth-century France; and (2) “Paris of Waters,” which focuses on the impact of water on the demographic, social, architectural, and urban development of the city of Paris through time.

Kristin L. Huffman

Lecturing Fellow
| website || contact |

Kristin L. Huffman is a Lecturing Fellow in the Department of Art, Art History, and Visual Studies at Duke University. Her current research focuses on the uses and configurations of space for the visual arts, the topic of her book project, Visual Rhetoric and Spatial Dynamics in Early Modern Venice. In it, she examines the intentional construction of visual systems with independent monuments, their alignment with urban spatial phenomena, and the deliberate ordering and presentation of knowledge and ideologies.

Her interest in lost urban experiences and reconstructing transformed or demolished spaces led her to work with Wired! at Duke as well as Visualizing Venice. For the latter, she contributed to the exhibition, Water and Food in Venice, at the Ducal Palace in 2015, and most recently curated the exhibition, A Portrait of Venice: Jacopo de’ Barbari’s View of 1500 presently on display at the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke. She has recently organized a symposium, Stories about Venice and de’ Barbari’s Marvelous View of 1500, as part of a publication that will present scholarly essays together with the digital stories featured within the exhibition.

Paul Jaskot

Director, Wired! Lab | Professor of Art History
| contact |

Paul Jaskot was previously Professor of the History of Art and Architecture and Director of Studio χ at DePaul University. He specializes in the history of modern German architecture and art, with a particular interest in the political history of architecture before, during, and after the Nazi era. He has also published on Holocaust Studies topics more broadly, modern architecture including the history of Chicago architecture, methodological essays on Marxist art history, and diverse topics in Digital Art History. He has authored or edited several monographs and anthologies, including The Nazi Perpetrator: Postwar German Art and the Politics of the Right (University of Minnesota Press, 2012).

Paul has also been deeply involved in Digital Art History issues for the past decade, both as a scholar and as an advocate. In this role, he has been part of the Holocaust Geography Collaborative, an international team of scholars that has been exploring the use of GIS and other digital methods to analyze central problems in the history of the Holocaust, including issues rising from the built environment. He has worked most closely with Anne Kelly Knowles (University of Maine), co-authoring several presentations and essays with her, most recently as part of the anthology Geographies of the Holocaust (University of Indiana Press, 2014), the first volume on the use of GIS for the study of the Holocaust. This work has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities, among other sources.

From 2008-2010, he was the President of the College Art Association (CAA). With CAA, he has also participated in various task forces promoting the support of and guidelines for Digital Art History and its professional evaluation. Paul and Anne also co-directed the Samuel  H. Kress Foundation Summer Institute on Digital Mapping and Art History.  He continues to be active with CAA and with the promotion of Digital Art History initiatives nationally.
