Lora's dissertation, "KosmosEmbodied: Eunuchs and Byzantine Art from the Ninth through Twelfth Centuries," asks how eunuchs were visually present in the Byzantine court. It addresses their artistic patronage, how they are represented, and, because they are "made" through the act of castration, how they themselves functioned as aesthetic objects within the ceremony of the court. 

Lora's work has been generously supported through a Kress Institutional Fellowship at the Bibliotheca Hertziana - Max Planck Institute for Art History.
