J.P. PARK, formerly Associate Professor at the University of California and Ailsa Mellon Bruce Senior Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., holds the June and Simon Li Associate Professorship in the History of Chinese Art. Professor Park is a fellow of Lincoln College.
Before his arrival at Oxford, J.P. Park previously taught at Columbia University, the University of Colorado, and the University of California. 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 A New Middle Kingdom: Painting and Cultural Politics in Late Chosŏn Korea (1700–1850) (University of Washington Press, 2018) and Art by the Book: Painting Manuals and the Leisure Life in Late Ming China (University of Washington Press, 2012), as well as numerous articles on East Asian art and literature. He is currently working on a new book project, Reinventing Art History: Forgery and Counterforgery in Early Modern Chinese Art.
