Paulino has been on the faculty at Winthrop since 2003, first in the departments
of English and Visual and Performing Arts and now in the Department of
Interdisciplinary Studies. Between 2010 and 2012, she was a Visiting Professor
at the University of Porto, Portugal, where she taught and supervised graduate
students in Art History and Museum Studies. She also began developing a
curriculum in Critical Thinking at the Catholic University of Porto.
Born in Portugal, Dr. Paulino is an accredited translator with the US State
Department and often writes about translation. She also writes personal essays
and short stories. Her research interest lies in the connections between
cultures, peoples and ways of seeing. She studied in several countries and holds
graduate degrees in English Literature and Art History. Her Ph.D. in Art History
focuses on the art and architecture of Lisbon filtered through the gaze of
foreign travelers between 1750 and 1850. Her forthcoming book (early 2013)
reflects on the common and divergent threads in these narratives from the points
of view of art history, cultural history and gender studies.
Paulino is currently working on developing the new B.A. in Individualized
