Hye-shim Yi is an art historian of late imperial China, with a minor concentration in Korean art. Dr. Yi received her Ph.D. in Art History from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), an M.A. in Art History from Seoul National University in South Korea, and a B.A. in Aesthetics from Seoul National University. She was awarded several fellowships for her research, including the Confucius China Studies Program: Joint Ph.D. Research Fellowship from the Chinese National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language, the Marilyn A. Papp Scholarship in Chinese Art and Culture from the Marilyn A. Papp Scholarship Trust, and the Chancellor’s Prize Award at UCLA. Her dissertation, “The Calligraphic Art of Chen Hongshou (1768-1822) and the Practice of Inscribing in the Middle Qing,” addresses the emergence of calligraphic carving as a new avenue of literati expression during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in China. Her research interests include the intersections of literati arts and artisanal crafts, the interplay between multiple art media, the relationship between intellectual and manual work, the materiality of calligraphy and painting, and antiquarianism. Dr. Yi offers courses on East Asian visual and material cultures that cover a wide array of artistic productions including calligraphy, painting, seal carving, and ceramics.
