Wen-Shing Chou

Professor of Art History

Wen-Shing Chou joined the Hunter College faculty in 2011 after receiving her Ph.D. in History of Art from the University of California, Berkeley.  Her dissertation, which she is currently revising into a book, considers the visionary landscape of the sacred mountain range of Wutai Shan in northern China within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.  It explores the shifting dynamics of the Wutai Shan as a geographical, mental, visual, and visionary pilgrimage destination by analyzing religious maps, cosmological depictions, travel narratives, and architectural replicas of Wutai Shan from the eighteenth century onward.  Her research has been supported by the Ittleson Fellowship at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts, National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, and a research grant from the Metropolitan Center for Far Eastern Art Studies, Kyoto.  Her articles have appeared in The Art Bulletin and the Journal of the International Association of Tibetan Studies.

Chou offers topical courses in Buddhist Art in China and the Himalayas, and practices of painting and writing in East Asia.  Her research interests include visual exchanges in the early modern world, the relationship between vision and representation, and the intersection of sacred biography and cartography in Buddhist traditions.
