"I love teaching, not only because it satisfies my own curiosity about the world, but also because one day the students might think that if I take it that seriously there must be something worth learning about."

Dr. Schroeder specializes in art history of the Byzantine era, and she teaches courses in art and religion, including Islamic art. She is working on a book, “On the Margins of the Byzantine Church,” about monastic images in the spaces that frame 14th-century churches in northern Greece and Constantinople (Istanbul).
