 Nancy Thompson, St. Olaf College


I teach introductory courses in Art History and upper-level courses in medieval and Renaissance art, including a January interim course in Florence. I also teach Introduction to Women’s Studies, and I’ve taught in St. Olaf’s Great Conversation Program.


I am currently working on various projects having to do with medieval Franciscans and the experience of stained glass in the 13th and 14th centuries. For more on my work, see my page.


I have been teaching at St. Olaf since the fall of 2000, and I love it.  I live in Minneapolis with my husband, my 15-year old stepson and my 7-year old son.
