Stephanie Nadalo, United States / France
Stephanie Nadalo is a Franco-American art historian, professor, and cultural guide based in Paris. She teaches at Parsons Paris, the European branch of Parsons School of Design, where she is Associate Director of the Art, Media & Technology BFA program. She holds a doctorate (Ph.D.) and two masters degrees from Northwestern University and she completed her undergraduate studies at Sarah Lawrence College in New York. From 2008-2012 her research was based in Italy, where she benefited from grants including the Fulbright Fellowship, the American Academy in Rome Prize, and a visiting fellowship at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa. Whereas her doctoral research examined the urban history of religious minorities in Early Modern Italy, her more recent scholarship focuses on the intersection between art, museology, and religious pluralism in France from the 19th century to the present. When she is not in the classroom Stephanie works as a licensed museum guide at institutions including the Louvre, Orsay, and the Museum of Jewish Art & History.
