This fall, Art History doctoral candidate Emily Tuttle joins the faculty at Limestone University as a full-time art history instructor and director of the newly opened Limestone University Art Gallery. Emily has been an adjunct with Limestone since 2015, teaching art appreciation and a variety of art history classes, including the introductory surveys, contemporary research methodologies, and narratives in art across time.
In the coming year, she will curate three exhibitions in the fall and support graduating seniors in the spring as they present their final body of work. The forthcoming shows include A Place of Our Own, The Collective Works of Ashley Holt, and The Crafted Narrative. The latter is a collaboration between Emily’s art students and FSU students in Dr. Carey Fee’s Museum Basics course. Limestone art students will create the art for the exhibit, and FSU students will document the art in an exhibition catalog. The two groups will gather on the campus in Gaffney, SC in mid-January, 2022, for a reception and celebration of their efforts.
In addition to teaching for Limestone, Emily has been an adjunct for Winthrop University and Spartanburg Community College. She is completing her dissertation, “Documenting Domesticity: An Examination of the Home in Late Medieval Yorkshire,” under the direction of Dr. Richard K. Emmerson and Dr. Ben Dodds. Her research focuses on everyday household objects, material culture, and notary documentation. Emily will present an excerpt of her dissertation at the 2021 Southeastern Medieval Association in November 2021.
