J. P. PARK holds the June and Simon Li Professorship in the History of Chinese Art. Professor Park is a fellow of Lincoln College.
Although his primary research focuses on early modern Chinese and Korean art, he has extensively researched and published on a much wider spectrum of art historical topics, including print culture, cartography, literary criticism, and post-globalism in contemporary East Asian art. He is the author of 1) A New Middle Kingdom: Painting and Cultural Politics in Late Chosŏn Korea (1700–1850) (University of Washington Press, 2018), 2) Art by the Book: Painting Manuals and the Leisure Life in Late Ming China (University of Washington Press, 2012), and 3) Keeping It Real!:Korean Artists in the Age of Multi-Media Representation (Workroom, 2012) as well as numerous articles on East Asian art and literature featured in major field journals such as Art Bulletin, Artibus Asiae, Archives of Asian Art, Orientations, and Third Text. He is currently completing a new book project, Reinventing Art History: Forgery and Counterforgery in Early Modern Chinese Art.
