Student Testimonials

Christina Geisse

The Asian Studies Program was incredible because most professors were undertaking their own research, passionate about their subject of study, and enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge with students. It felt fresh and profound at the same time. Inspiring!

I was able to delve deep and focus on the areas of Asian Studies that truly interested me, and therefore gained a much more thorough and developed understanding of my fields of interest, which are applicable to my current career path. Also, the professors are extremely helpful and want their students to succeed. They were very supportive both while I was at UH and after I graduated.

Celia Langford Talk

 Student Voices: Research in Chinese Art and Philosophy 

Celia Langford, MA candidate in Asian Studies. “Breathing with the Page: Poetry, Painting, and the Subjective Role of the Viewer in Song Dynasty Literati Art.” In Northern Song Dynasty China, the influential poet and painter Su Shi (1037-1101) initiated a groundbreaking shift in perceptions on art, suggesting that poems and paintings were in essence the same thing; what one could do, so could the other. Scholars in the millennium since, including scholars of today, have long debated the nature of this complementarity. While many have focused on similarities in iconography, I will demonstrate here how parallels in the subjective and sensory experiences of the viewer are equally essential to Su Shi’s poem-painting connection.
