Congratulations to Emily Neumeier, our 2016-18 ACLS Post-doctoral Fellow, who has accepted a position as Assistant Professor of Art History in the Tyler School of Art at Temple University.
Emily specializes in the art and architecture of the Islamic world, with a particular focus on the Eastern Mediterranean. Her current research combines issues of architectural patronage, center-periphery relations, and theories of geography and landscape to understand the shifting power dynamics of the Ottoman Empire during the so-called Age of Revolutions—all through an extended case study of the life and times of Tepdelenli Ali Pasha, the notorious provincial governor from Greece and Albania. Recent and forthcoming publications include an article on Ottoman antiquarianism in the International Journal of Islamic Architecture and an essay on historical memory in the post-imperial museum in the journal History & Anthropology.
For the 2018-2019 academic year, Dr. Neumeier will be in residence at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens as Getty/ACLS Fellow in the History of Art.
