Curriculum vitae

Since retiring from Bryn Mawr in 2010, Prof. Kinney has taught at the American University of Rome, where she was interim head of the art history program; at Temple University (Spring 2012), and at the Institute of Fine Arts (Spring 2013).  She serves on a number of boards and committees, including the board of directors of the International Center of Medieval Art, the board of advisors of the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts, the editorial advisory board of Studies in Iconography, and the Fachbeirat of the Bibliotheca Hertziana/Max-Planck-Institut für Kunstgeschichte, Rome.

Prof. Kinney’s current research focuses on the architecture of late antique Egypt and the art and architecture of medieval Rome; she also continues to be engaged with issues related to her previous work on spolia.  Her most recent publications are “Spolia as Signifiers in Twelfth-Century Rome,” “Hans-Peter L’Orange on Portraits and the Arch of Constantine: A Lasting Legacy,” and  “Romanità a Roma: Le basiliche del XII secolo fra tradizioni e innovazioni.”  Selected articles and essays may be viewed at
