Stephen J. Lucey
Dr. Lucey is an associate professor of art history in the Art Department. A faculty member at Keene State College since 2008, he teaches courses in pre-modern and non-Western art history. Professor Lucey earned his B.A. from Wesleyan University and his Ph.D. from Rutgers University. His research focuses on the medieval Mediterranean with interests that include artistic exchange in multicultural societies and the intersection of art, architecture, and ritual. His current projects include inquiry into royal artistic patronage in medieval Cyprus and the history of medieval archaeology in Italy. Professor Lucey’s academic interests extend well beyond the Middle Ages; he has curated a number of museum exhibitions ranging from ancient Egyptian funerary art to American printmaking, and he is an avid collector of contemporary Native American art.
