Kyushu University has been awarded a prestigious grant from the Getty Foundation’s Connecting Art Histories initiative for a newly-launched project “Shared Coasts, Divided Historiographies”. Kyushu University is the first academic institution in Japan ever to receive a grant from Getty.
The Getty Foundation is the grant-making program of the J. Paul Getty Trust and the world’s largest grant-giving institution in the field of art history. The Getty Trust also includes three other distinct institutions: the Getty Museum, the Getty Research Institute, and the Getty Conservation Institute.
The two-year project will be led by Professors Anton SCHWEIZER and Gloria Yu YANG. Both professors teach the International Master’s Program and the International Doctorate, which are programs within Kyushu University’s Graduate School of Humanities.
The project will host a series of guest lectures and workshops, and will assemble fifteen junior scholars from around the world to embark on two travel seminars to Seoul, Pusan, Taipei, Okinawa, and Kyushu. The project aims to develop a vision for the next generation of East Asian art history. This project is made possible with support from Getty through its Connecting Art Histories initiative.
