Chinese scholars attend NYC workshop on American art
From July 31 to August 11, fifteen scholars of Western art history from leading Chinese universities and art academies attended an intensive workshop in New York City focused on Modernism in American art. The workshop, co-sponsored with the Terra Foundation for American Art and hosted by the Asian Cultural Council, enabled Chinese art historians whose work centers on Western art to experience the subjects of their research firsthand, visiting New York City museums and deepening their knowledge through guest lectures. This workshop represented the most recent in a series of Luce Foundation initiatives over more than a decade to support dialogue between Chinese and American art scholars.

Luce Fund for Asian Studies Capstone Conference
From October 12 to 14, 2007, the Foundation organized a Capstone Conference for the Luce Fund for Asian Studies (LFAS) in partnership with the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS). Twenty-seven LFAS professors joined program staff from the Foundation and ACLS in Princeton, New Jersey, for a series of plenary and breakout sessions on topics including the role of area studies in liberal education, the relationship between teaching and research in career planning, and student expectations. The gathering presented an opportunity for a new generation of Asian studies scholars to share resources and approaches to teaching about Asia in the context of the liberal arts. The Conference also aided the Foundation in assessing the impact of the four-year LFAS initiative and in future planning. A published volume of essays resulting from the conversations, intended as a resource for scholars and administrators, is being planned.
Further information about the Conference is available on the ACLS website (www.acls.org) under the Programs & Initiatives tab.
