Angi Elsea Bourgeois, a longtime faculty member in Mississippi State’s College of Architecture, Art and Design, is the new permanent leader of its art department. Since 2014, she has lead the state’s largest undergraduate studio art program on an interim basis. She joined MSU in 2002.
After graduating with honors in art history from Rhodes College in Memphis, Bourgeois went on to complete a doctorate in Italian Renaissance and medieval art history from Emory University in Atlanta.
Earlier this year, she was elected to a two-year term as secretary for the Italian Arts Society, an international scholarly organization where she has been a member since 2004.
Bourgeois is the author of “Reconstructing the Lost Frescoes of Santa Maria sopra Minerva in Rome from the ‘Meditationes’ of Cardinal Juan de Torquemada: A Case Study in the History of Art” (Edwin Mellen Press, 2009). In 2010, she published a digital textbook for art history survey courses titled “The History of the Art of the Western World from Prehistory through the Gothic.”
