Jacqueline M. Lombard, Ph.D. Candidate, Department of History of Art and Architecture, University of Pittsburgh

Jacqueline Lombard is a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Pittsburgh. 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 Medieval Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Her dissertation examines images of Africans that were circulating in Europe during the tenth through twelfth centuries to explore how medieval European artists used visual languages to communicate ideas about identity, globality, and race. She is currently based in Frankfurt am Main as a guest researcher at the Goethe University through the support of a DAAD research grant.
