Scholars

ISAAC Fellows at the Art Institute of Chicago

Each year, the Art Institute of Nanjing University will select three distinguished Chinese scholars; one senior scholar to be in residence for three months, and two junior scholars to be in residence for two academic semesters at the O’Donnell Institute. During their residence, the scholars will work in libraries, universities, museums and private collections in Dallas-Fort Worth and in addition travel to collections, archives, and libraries throughout the United States, to learn the American landscape, and to meet scholars, students, and collectors.
