Lucy Maulsby received her B.A. in Art History from Smith College, her M.Phil. in the History and Theory of Architecture from Cambridge University in England, before earning her PhD at Columbia University (2007). Her scholarship focuses on the relationships between architecture, urbanism, and politics, with a particular emphasis on architecture in modern Italy.

She has given papers on topics related to her dissertation at national conferences and organized a symposium on inter-war Italian urbanism at Columbia University (April 2007). Maulsby is currently working on a book manuscript exploring Milan’s urban and architectural transformation in the Fascist period and on a guidebook to modern architecture for which the Graham Foundation provided research support. At Columbia Maulsby taught undergraduate courses in art history and graduate seminars modern Italian architecture. She has also taught at the University of Massachusetts in Boston.
