Nicole Paxton Sullo specializes in Byzantine and Medieval art. Her current research focuses on concepts of memory and time in the Middle Ages and how these concepts changed during the final years of Byzantium. Her dissertation, “The Art of Memory in Byzantium during the Later Middle Ages,” argues for the mnemonic function of art within the late monastic Byzantine church (c. 1204-1453) and inquires how images engaged medieval viewers in programs of collective memory.
Nicole received her M.A. from the University of Notre Dame and her B.A. from Wellesley College. Her dissertation research has been supported by the CASVA Twelve-Month Chester Dale Fellowship.
