About Us

The Association for Chinese Art History (ACAH) was established in 2022 to promote communication and community among scholars of Chinese art and architectural history and the visual cultures of global and diasporic Chinas. We publicize scholarly opportunities, events, and news through a member-only listserv and biweekly newsletter; award grants to support research, teaching, and conference panels; offer opportunities for mentoring, dialogue, and learning through webinars and reading groups; and celebrate scholarly excellence by awarding the annual Bei Shan Tang Monograph and Catalogue Prizes.

ACAH is an affiliate committee of the Association for Asian Studies. Membership is invited from individuals worldwide who have a scholarly interest in the art and architectural history and visual cultures of China and of the Chinese diaspora: faculty, students, museum professionals, art world professionals, and independent and emeritus scholars. We are grateful for support from Bei Shan Tang Foundation (北山堂基金). For more information about the history of ACAH, please read the following Asia Now feature.
