Conceived as a dual location program, doctoral candidates from North America, Europe, and Asia will participate in the dissertation workshops in Chicago or Beijing. Through presentations and discussions, as well as site and collection visits, participants in the dissertation workshops will develop or advance their dissertation projects while being exposed to different topics and divergent methodologies, allowing them to discover unexpected historical links and conceptual connections. The traveling seminar to China, including similar robust art historical exchanges between students and scholars, will expand perspectives at an even earlier, formative stage.
The program seeks to nurture a generation of historians of Chinese art across historical eras and media in an intellectual environment that crosses continental, cultural, and disciplinary boundaries. To that end, the workshops provide an opportunity for advanced graduate students in Chinese art history from different institutions and countries to share their dissertation projects, discuss different methodologies and scholarships, hone their research and writing skills, and connect with senior experts in the field.
The workshops will entail presentations of dissertation projects; intense discussion of their content, purpose, and method; and explorations of the state of the field, key texts, and research methods.
There will also be time for students to pursue specific, individual dissertation research in local libraries, archives, and collections.
The cohort emerging from each workshop is encouraged to cultivate ongoing exchange and collaborations. Each workshop will be led by one senior Chinese art historian. Student participants should have ABD All But Dissertation statusor equivalent, and be in the research or early writing phase of their doctoral work at the time of the workshop.
All participant dissertation proposals will be circulated for close reading by the other participants before the workshop begins.
All participants will also be asked to improve their proposals based on the comments and other related discussions during the workshop. English will be the primary teaching language of this workshop, but ideally, all workshop participants should be able to communicate in English and Chinese Mandarin.
The department is home to three full-time tenured faculty members and one regular postdoctoral position in East Asian art history, as well as the Center for the Art of East Asia.
Award notifications will be sent in early June. Applicants may be interviewed via Skype. Fluency in English is required and an advanced level of Chinese Mandarin is preferred. All application materials should be composed in English.Back issues are available for as little as $3 per issue.
