Heidelberg-Getty Dissertation Workshop on East Asian Art History

Heidelberg-Getty Dissertation Workshop on East Asian Art History

Mentor Lecture Series on Research Methods
Connecting Art Histories
Centre for Asian and Transcultural Studies

Open to the Public
July 22-25, 2019


To complement the Getty-sponsored Connecting Art Histories Dissertation Workshop sessions at Heidelberg University this summer, five faculty mentors will offer perspectives on their approach to research. The format is informal, hence the humorous, slightly irreverent titles. The one exception is the first presentation offered by Lothar Ledderose who is celebrating his 50th years of research at Heidelberg. He will explore the state of the field by means of assessing ground-breaking dissertations that changed the direction of research in East Asian art history.
