Dale Kinney is a historian of art and architecture whose specialties include late antiquity, medieval Italy, and the afterlife of antique sites and objects (spolia). She is also a member of the team currently studying the 5th/6th-century "Red Monastery" near Sohag in Upper Egypt. In addition to the Red Monastery and spolia, her most recent publications treat issues of interpretation ("Interpretatio christiana," "The discourse of columns") and historiography ("Hans-Peter L 'Orange on Portraits and the Arch of Constantine"). Professor Kinney is recently retired from Bryn Mawr College, where she taught medieval art from 1972 to 2010. She has been awarded an Emeritus Fellowship from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for a study of church architecture in Italy from the millennium to around 1300.
