History of Art and Architecture

Jacqueline Lombard



Jackie Lombard joined the department in 2015 after completing her BA in Studio Art at Carleton College, where she also graduated with a minor in Medieval and Renaissance Studies. She specializes in medieval art history, with a particular focus on the history of art objects as products or conduits of cross-cultural exchange between the empires and kingdoms of Medieval Europe, the Middle East, and Northern and Eastern Africa. Her research explores pre-modern conceptions of ethnic and racial identity, and seeks to understand how medieval peoples articulated and understood their own identities and spaces through artistic production.
