"I’m a master’s candidate at Indiana University in Bloomington, working on Renaissance art, artistic patronage by and for communities of women, and Italian artistic exchange with the Middle East. I just completed my first semester teaching sections of Renaissance to Modern and loved it. I am now grading for a class on Michelangelo and Leonardo."
