Lindsay Dupertuis is a Ph.D candidate specializing in Italian Renaissance art. She is interested in the depiction of secular narrative and allegory in Italy from the fourteenth century through the sixteenth century, particularly in the form of domestic and decorative arts, illustrated books, and prints. More broadly, she is concerned with issues of gender, class and popular culture. In December 2014, she defended her Master's thesis, "Imitation and Adaptation in Istoriato Maiolica: A Case-Study of the Anne de Montmorency Service, 1535." During the summer of 2015, she continued her study of Renaissance ceramics as a graduate intern in the Department of Sculpture and Decorative Arts at the National Gallery of Art.
Lindsay currently serves as the graduate assistant for "Art History in Digital Dimensions," a digital art history symposium hosted by the department in October 2016. She also produces Quadrivium, a montly digital art history digest, for the Michelle Smith Collaboratory for Visual Culture. In past semesters she has worked as a teaching assistant for ARTH 200 and ARTH 255. In spring and fall of 2013, she worked as a graduate assistant in digital humanities in the Collaboratory, where she used Google Earth to design an interactive map of medieval pilgrimage routes to Rome and developed several videos to complement the course "Color: Art, Science, and Culture."
Lindsay graduated from Oberlin College in 2009 with Honors in Art History, where she wrote her senior thesis on a pair of cassoni by Florentine artist Apollonio di Giovanni. She has held internships at the Education Department of the Walters Art Museum and the Department of Drawings and Prints at the Morgan Library and Museum.
