Curriculum Vitae

Nick Camerlenghi joined the University of Oregon in 2010. He specializes in the study of early Christian and medieval art and architecture with particular focus on the city of Rome. His larger interests extend to the interplay between nature and architecture and the history of gastronomy. Prior to receiving his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2007, he earned a Master of Architectural Studies from MIT and a Bachelor of Arts from Yale. His dissertation on the architectural renovations to the Basilica of San Paolo fuori le Mura in Rome is now being revised for book-length publication. In addition to this important study of one of Rome’s most significant buildings, Prof. Camerlenghi has turned his attention to broader questions that address scholarly approaches to buildings with long and complex histories, and to the development of domes across the medieval Mediterranean. His courses span from early medieval to Renaissance architecture.
