Julie Timte is a second-year Ph.D. student with interests in Italian Renaissance and Baroque Art; Art of the the Islamic Worlds; and the material, technical, and stylistic intersections between these two fields. Specifically, she is interested in how text and image interact to create meaning in varying social, geographic, and temporal contexts. Julie received her B.A. in Art History and Plan II Honors from The University of Texas at Austin. Prior to studying at Rice, Julie worked for the Sarah Campbell Blaffer Foundation and the Art of the Islamic Worlds Department at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, where she contributed to the exhibition publication for Bestowing Beauty: Masterpieces from Persian Lands.
