In retirement, Prof. Kinney is enjoying the opportunity to focus on publication and research. She has lectured widely in Europe and the U.S. and taught seminars at Temple University and the Institute of Fine Arts (N.Y.U.). She serves on several editorial boards and was the book review editor of Studies in Iconography from 2014 to 2017. In 2016-17 she was the Samuel H. Kress Professor at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery in Washington.
Prof. Kinney’s present focus is the publication of her long-standing research on the church of Santa Maria in Trastevere. Aspects of this work appeared in three articles published in 2016, along with an essay on spolia and two chapters in The Red Monastery Church (Sohag) edited by Elizabeth Bolman. She is writing the entry on Santa Maria in Trastevere for volume 4 of Die Kirchen der Stadt Rom im Mittelalter, after which she plans to complete her study of the later life of this basilica from the 15th to the 20th century. Her publications can be found in the BMC Digital Repository and in Academia.edu.
