Katherine R. Tsiang, Associate Director at Center for the Art of East Asia, University of Chicago, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Fine Arts.

Dr. Tsiang took up her current post in 2003, after working as a supervisor of research materials in East Asian art from 1996 to 2003. The center was established that year with support from the University of Chicago’s division of the humanities to suit a rapidly growing field of East Asian art at the institution. Drawing from traditional and contemporary influences, the field crosses over into archeology and with the countries of Korea, Japan, and China. Its insights have become a growing subject for scholars and artists looking to study international affairs and culture.

An alumna of the University of London School for Oriental and African Studies, Dr. Tsiang earned a MPhil there before studying for a PhD in art history from the University of Chicago. Now a member of its Center for the Art of East Asia, she serves a growing interest in a visual and academic culture, while assisting a diverse research program. At once cross-disciplinary and cross-geographical in nature, the work connects the center with scholars and research centers all over the world, as well as new technologies and an incredible archive of interest. The Center for the Art of East Asia is supported by such luminary groups as the Carpenter Foundation, the Confucius Institute, and numerous private donations.
