We are delighted to announce that Dr J.P. Park has been appointed to the post of June and Simon Li Fellow and Tutor in the History of Art at Lincoln College. He will also hold a teaching position within the University’s History of Art Department, where he will specialise in the History of Chinese Art.
Dr Park was formerly an Associate Professor at the University of California, and held the Ailsa Mellon Bruce Senior Fellowship at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (CASVA) at the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C. from 2018 to 2019. His research interests include early modern Chinese Art, artistic exchange between China, Japan, and Korea, and multi-culturalism in contemporary East Asian art. Dr Park’s most recent books include A New Middle Kingdom: Painting and Cultural Politics in Late Chos?n Korea (1700–1850) (University of Washington Press, 2018) and Art by the Book: Painting Manuals and the Leisure Life in Late Ming China (University of Washington Press, 2012).
This new post in the History of Art was created thanks to the generosity and support of June and Simon Li (1966).
We look forward to welcoming Dr Park to Lincoln for the start of the 2019/2020 academic year.
