Biography

Christine Hahn specializes in 20th century art, examining how the circulation of art via expatriate artists; traveling exhibitions; and the museum space creates multilayered meanings for global audiences. She is currently at work on a book project that examines the history of 20th century Korean painting and its relationship to Western modernism, Japanese colonialism, and the aftermath of the Korean War.

Dr. Hahn received both her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and has had the opportunity to share her work with local, national, and international audiences. She was the recipient of a Fulbright Research Fellowship in 2002, spending the year in Seoul, South Korea. Dr. Hahn has developed several new courses for the Art History curriculum at K, including Art and Gender, a course on the history of the modern art museum, and a methodological course on important theoretical texts in 20th century art.
