Congratulations to Kate Lingley, Assistant Professor of Chinese Art History. Kate is a 2009 recipient of the UH Manoa Chancellor’s Citation for Meritorious Teaching.
Kate is in her 6th year with the department. She was educated at Harvard University, the University of Chicago and Peking University. Her research has focused on the social history of art in the early medieval period, particularly on issues of self-representation and the patronage of Buddhist sculpture. This has led her to a broader interest in costume, personal adornment and the representation of the self in all periods of pre-modern China.
With Gallery Director Lisa Yoshihara, Kate co-curated the Excelling the Work of Heaven exhibition as well as co-authored the catalog and website.
