Eva Baboula

Evanthia (Eva) Baboula studied archaeology and art history at the University of Athens and later received her M.Phil. and D.Phil. from the University of Oxford for research on ancient metalwork and metallurgy. She is a faculty member at the Department of Art History and Visual Studies and the Associate Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Victoria. She researches cross-cultural connections focusing on the relationship of image and word in the medieval Mediterranean, in particular the Byzantine world (12th-15th centuries), and the architecture and topography of southern Greece in the Ottoman period (15th-19th centuries).

Recent publications include Art and Material Culture in the Byzantine and Islamic Worlds: Studies in Honour of Erica Cruikshank Dodd, edited with Lesley Jessop (published by Brill, 2021); and Made for the Eye of One Who Sees: Canadian Contributions to the Study of Islamic Art and Archaeology, edited with Marcus Milwright and forthcoming this summer by McGill-Queen’s University Press and the Royal Ontario Museum. Eva teaches a range of UVic courses from the undergraduate Introduction to World Art to specialised graduate seminars; she is currently teaching a group of first-year MA and PhD students about genres of art historical writing. Eva’s administrative portfolio is student-focused and includes academic success and supports, recruitment and retention initiatives, curriculum development, interdisciplinary programs, Indigenous and international partnerships, and quite a bit more.
