Mia Yinxing Liu received her Ph. D. in 2013 in Art History from the University of Chicago, and before joining Bates she was a postdoctoral associate at Yale University in 2014. Her book manuscript deals with the re-framing, revision and re-appropriation of literati landscape aesthetics in Chinese cinema between 1949 and 1979. Some of her current research interests include Lang Jingshan and Chinese pictorialist photography, the multiplication of “I” or pictures of “me and myself” in early Chinese photography and film, and self-portraiture in modern Chinese visual arts.
