Art Historian Alessandra Comini Retires From SMU
Dr. Alessandra Comini.

DALLAS, TEXAS.- Dr. Alessandra Comini, art historian, is retiring from Southern Methodist University to be a guest lecturer at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Meadows Museum. Alessandra Comini received her B. A. degree from Barnard College, her M.A. from the University of California at Berkeley, and her Ph. D. "with distinction" from Columbia University where she taught for ten years. She has also taught at the University of California, Berkeley, Yale University, served as the Alfred Hodder Resident Humanist at Princeton University, and been named Distinguished Visiting Lecturer at Oxford University's European Humanities Research Centre (1996). Voted "outstanding professor" by her students twelve times, she has been extended the Distinguished Teaching Prize of the Meadows School of the Arts and the United Methodist Church Scholar/Teacher of the Year Award (1996).

An undergraduate and a graduate scholarship in her name have been established by former students—one a professor of surgical oncology in Little Rock, Arkansas; the other, a co-owner of an international antiques business in Dallas.
