Dr. Madeline Rislow is Assistant Professor of Art History at Missouri Western State University. She received her PhD in Italian Renaissance Art History from the University of Kansas. Her recent work focuses on how portal imagery was employed to construct and convey civic, religious and familial identity in the Ligurian region of northwest Italy during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. In addition to studying the social, economic, and political function of Italian Renaissance art, her research interests include contemporary art, virtual reality, and popular culture.
Dr. Rislow’s research has been supported by several grants, including a Fulbright grant to Italy. She has presented her research at various national and international venues, such as the Mediterranean Studies Association Congress, the Renaissance Society of America’s annual conference and the Italo-Brittanica Association in Genoa, Italy. Prior to coming to Missouri Western, she taught at the Kansas City Art Institute, the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and the University of Kansas, both on campus and abroad in Italy and France.
