Dr. 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 Portugal between 1750 and 1850. She has been actively publishing in international academic journals and books, and has recently seen her own book published (August 2013). Entitled Uma Torre Delicada: Lisboa e Arredores em Notas de Viajantes ca. 1750-1850 (A delicate tower: Lisbon and Surrounding Areas in Travelers’ Notes ca. 1750-1850), it brings to light forty-eight narratives by German, English, French, Polish, Dutch, Swedish and North-American travelers, and offers a reflection on their common and divergent views from the points of view of art and architecture, cultural history, and gender studies.

Dr. Paulino is the director of the new B.A. in Individualized Studies.
