Asa Mittman- Art and Art History

Professor in the Department of Art and Art History. Asa has served as department chair since 2016 and is a prolific scholar both locally and abroad. A July 2018 interview in the Chronicle of Higher Education speaks volumes about his commitment to creating a just, equitable, and inclusive environment not just on Chico State’s campus, but in his academic discipline and the field of medieval studies at large. He received a National Endowment for the Arts $25,000 Art Works grant in support of his curated exhibition Medieval Monsters: Terrors, Aliens, and Wonders at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York (2018), and for the accompanying book. The exhibition will travel to the Cleveland Art Museum and to the Blanton Art Museum in Austin, Texas. He has shared his research widely, including invited talks and keynote addresses at the University of Lincoln in the United Kingdom, University College Cork in Ireland, Fondazione Museo del Tesoro del Duomo e Archivio Capitolare in Vercelli, Italy, the University of Salzburg in Austria, and the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, as well as at UC Berkeley, Columbia University, NYU, Stanford, Yale, and many others. He is widely published in books, journals, articles, and chapters, and online.
