Faculty - Michael Grillo

Department Chairperson and Associate Professor of History of Art

History of Art, Photography

Dr. Michael Grillo writes on how Italian fourteenth-century images operate as primary sources that visually articulate ideas inexpressible in any other media, including written or oral speech.

Dr. Grillo received his PhD from Cornell University with a dissertation on Medieval History of Art. He continued this work with his 1997 book, “Symbolic Structures: The Role of Composition in Signalling Meaning in Italian Late Medieval Painting.” He offers seminars on Medieval and Renaissance Epistemology, Medieval and Renaissance New Media, and Theory and Practice in Photography, and lectures also in, Film Studies. He is also a practicing photographer, and seeks to explore how aesthetic theories play out directly in application in our world, particularly how photography operates as a cultural specific visual modality.

He also direct both the interdisciplinary Medieval and Renaissance Studies minor and the Film and Video minor.
