Hutterer received her PhD from New York University in 2011, where she studied medieval art and architecture. Before joining the faculty at the University of Oregon, she held appointments at Rutgers University and Western Illinois University. Her research focuses on the architecture and embellishment of ecclesiastical buildings in high and late medieval France. The results of these studies have appeared in the Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies and Gesta. She is currently completing a book manuscript with the working title, “The Art of the Flying Buttress.”

At the University of Oregon Hutterer teaches the first term of the department’s architectural history survey (ARH-314).  Her more specialized classes include Art and Crusade, Gothic Architecture, Medieval Art, and The Architecture of Pilgrimage.
