Registered Architect in Italy

Carla Keyvanian obtained her first professional degree in architecture in Italy and both her Master’s and Ph.D. in architectural history from MIT. She has taught at MIT and the University of Connecticut before arriving at Auburn, where she teaches architectural history. She specializes in the architectural and urban history of late medieval and Renaissance Italy and has published in numerous journals, notably the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians and the Journal of Architectural Education. Her first book, Hospitals and Urbanism in Rome 1200–1500 was published by Brill in 2015. She is currently writing a second book that explores the relationship between architectural design and the emergence of a modern notion of history in Renaissance Italy. Her work has received the support of the Center for Advanced Studies of the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, the American Academy in Rome, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
