The Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University announces it is convening an NEH Summer Institute from July 9-28, 2012, entitled “Re-envisioning American Art History: Asian American Art, Research, and Teaching.” The Summer Institute for twenty-five college and university teachers will deepen participants’ understanding of pivotal developments and critical issues in Asian American art history and visual culture studies, while providing access to specialized archives and collections that will enhance their research and teaching in the humanities.
Summer Institute faculty will include nationally prominent experts in the fields of art history, history, Asian American Studies, art education, curatorial and museum work, and library and information science. The Institute will cover key periods in Asian American art history beginning in the last century and continuing through the present, focusing upon important artists and art historical moments as well as the intersection of Asian American visual cultures, diaspora, and transnationalism. Participating core faculty and lecturers will lead seminars and special talks at A/P/A Institute, at NYU’s Fales Library & Special Collections, and at selected archives, museums, and artists’ studios throughout New York City.
