Elizabeth Raubolt has been an instructor of Art History in the Visual Arts Department at GRCC for just over two years. This semester she is teaching AT105: History of Art Before 1400 and AT106: History of Art Since 1400 both on campus and online. She has also taught art history for GRCC’s middle college program at Wyoming and Cedar Springs high schools.
While Elizabeth loves teaching art history, she really enjoys the opportunity to work with such a diverse student body. She strives to make the study of art history a hands-on experience and aims to design lessons that teach both the course objectives and emphasize the importance of applying the concepts and skills to real world situations. As an educator, one of her most important goals is to create an engaging and supportive environment where she can reach every student. Elizabeth hopes to ensure that students take something from her courses that will help them develop confidence in their abilities
and acquire the necessary skills to successfully navigate the challenges of being a college student and beyond.
In addition to teaching, Elizabeth received BA in Classical Archaeology and Anthropology from the University of Michigan and her Master’s Degree in Mediterranean Art and Archaeology from the University of Missouri. Currently, she is a Ph.D. Candidate in Roman and Late Antique Art and Archaeology at the University of Missouri. In addition, she is an active field archaeologist and has worked on projects in Italy, Portugal, Israel, Greece, and most recently, western Turkey. Finally, she is the co-author of the entry, “Sardis, Ritual Egg Deposits” in the 2015 publication, The Archaeology of Food: An Encyclopedia.
Beyond art history and archaeology, she enjoys time with her husband: taking walks with their Bernese Mountain Dog, Cleo, and spending time at their cabin in northern Michigan.
