Cynthia Costa

I'm a Senior Lecturer of Art History and the General Education Coordinator at Georgia Southern University's Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art, where I specialize in the history of ancient art. My professional and distance learning experience spans over a decade. I've pioneered online course design and delivery in art history and art appreciation at Georgia Southern University. In addition to my expertise in online design and administrative coordination, I've also developed innovative approaches to student engagement in the eLearning environment. As a Cengage Faculty Partner, I have the privilege of mentoring educators from diverse institutions and continue to forward eLearning best-practices in educational design. Additionally, I have experience as a certified Quality Matters Master Reviewer where I've peer-reviewed online course design from various colleges and universities across the country.

I specialize in Ancient Egyptian art and architecture but am also a generalist in the field of art history. My secondary specializations are in Ancient Roman and Early Christian/Byzantine art and architecture. I have research interest in defining, cataloging and contextualizing eye types seen in Ancient Egyptian relief and freestanding sculpture. However, I've been researching, writing, and lecturing at various locations on a variety of diverse topics that most recently include The Exploration of Identity in Harlem Renaissance Art, Rodin, Art Between the World Wars, and Pictorial Representations of Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses. My graduate degree is in art history, but I also have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting.
On a more personal note: I'm originally from Chicago but have lived in Savannah, Georgia since 1997. My husband is a Savannah local and I'm mother to a teenage boy, five rescued Siamese cats, a dog, and a fish. I also enjoy reading fiction and gardening.
