Art History


My research concerns eco-art history and East Asian religious (Buddhist, Daoist, and Folk) art and visual culture.

I'm currently working on my dissertation, titled "Activating the Sacred Landscape: the Visual Culture of Wuyi Mountains," in which I explore the critical encounter between visual production and natural environment, examining the ways in which the physical environment conditions visual production and how visual production in turn transforms the environment.
