Elizabeth Lisot came to UT Tyler after a three year visiting assistant professorship
at the University of Dallas, Rome Campus, where she taught Early Christian, Renaissance
and Baroque art history along Ancient Greek and Roman art. While working in Europe
she conducted, in conjunction with the university, educational tours of museums, archaeological
sites and churches in Rome, Florence, Assisi, Orvieto, Venice, Paestum and Pompeii,
Italy, and Athens, Mycenae, Olympia, Delphi, Hosios Loukas and Meteora, Greece. Dr.
Lisot has presented papers internationally and in the U.S. including at the Sixteenth
Century Journal Conference and the Renaissance Society of America Annual Meetings.
Her areas of expertise are Italian Renaissance and Baroque art, and aesthetic theory;
however she also specializes in the art of Greece and Rome, both ancient and Christian,
along with Revolutionary and Folk Art in Mexico. Her research interests include images
representing marginalized populations such as illegitimate children, servants and
slaves, Catholic art and doctrine, artworks used for Christian meditation and in particular
the paintings of Federico Barocci (1535-1612), who was the subject of her doctoral
dissertation. Among Professor Lisot’s most recent writing projects is a chapter, “Bleeding
Bodies and Bondage: Signifiers of Illegitimacy in Ghirlandaio's Adoration of the Magi and Andrea della Robbia's Tondi at the Ospedale degli Innocenti, Florence,” in a volume of Monstrous Borders, forthcoming from the University of Toronto Press.
