Naomi Pitamber

Visiting Assistant Professor, Art History

M.A., University of Texas at San Antonio

Ph.D., University of California, Los Angeles • VA 110

Naomi Ruth Pitamber earned her Ph.D. in Art History at the University of California in 2015, where she studied western medieval history and Byzantine art history. Her first book, Replacing Byzantium: Laskarid Urban Environments and the Landscape of Loss (1204-1261), is under review with Cambridge University Press. Her current research focuses on late antique and early Christian architecture, illuminated manuscripts in Greek and Latin, crusader and Byzantine architecture, and interaction between the themes of exile, memory, and the sea and landscape. 

Pitamber joins the Faculty of Art and Art History in 2016 following the completion of two postdoctoral fellowships: The Onassis Foundation Teaching Postdoctoral Fellowship in Byzantine Art History at Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, and the Andrew W. Mellon Mediterranean Regional Research Fellowship from the Council for American Overseas Research Centers, which funded two summers of travel and research for her second book entitled Conquering the Sacred East.

Previous to the University of Wyoming, Pitamber taught at the University of Texas at San Antonio, Loyola Marymount University, UCLA, Portland State University, and Simon Fraser University. She teaches late antique and Early Christian art and architecture, western medieval and Byzantine art and architecture, and ancient Greek and Roman art and architecture.
