About Me

Sarah Luginbill is a PhD Candidate in History at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Her dissertation, “Portable Altars, Devotion, and Memory in German Lands, 1050-1190 CE,” examines the patronage and use of medieval portable altars in north-central Germany. Although in the History Department, Sarah is interested in interdisciplinary methods that combine the approaches of art history, history, and religious studies.

Sarah served as a Teaching Assistant for the History Department for four years, and as a Graduate Part-Time Instructor for one year. She is currently on a writing fellowship, from the History Department at CU Boulder, for the 2020-2021 academic year.

In 2014, Sarah earned a BA in History, with minors in Art History and Medieval & Renaissance Studies, from Trinity University. She participated in the 2013 archaeological excavation of the Binchester Roman Fort outside Durham, England, and has held internships at the San Antonio Museum of Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
