Advisors: Dr. Richard Emmerson and Dr. Ben Dodds
Emily Tuttle specializes in the material culture of domestic spaces in the Middle Ages. She is working to discern differences in living situations between the social classes in Yorkshire, England by referencing notary documentation, surviving artifacts, and visual representations of the home. Her dissertation reveals the connectivity between people of varying classes and locations through their collecting, displaying, and bequeathing practices.
Emily completed her BA in Art History at Winthrop University in 2010, and an MSc at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland in 2012 with an emphasis in Art in the Global Middle Ages. Before starting her MA in Art History at FSU in 2015, Emily taught AP Art History at the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities and worked at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte as a Museum Experience Associate. She served as an adjunct instructor at Limestone University in Gaffney, South Carolina from 2015-2021. In fall 2021 she was made a full-time Instructor of Art History and Gallery Director at Limestone University. In addition to her teaching and gallery responsibilities, Emily has led several study abroad trips with Limestone and looks forward to future trips with her students. Emily has also taught art appreciation, introductory art history, and upper-level specialization classes at Winthrop University and Spartanburg Community College.
