The Department of Art History is excited to announce that Professor Steffani Bennett will be joining us this fall as the Joan B. Mirviss Chair in Japanese Art. She wants our UW–Madison art history community to know: “I am delighted and honored to take up the Joan B. Mirviss Chair in Japanese Art at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I greatly look forward to engaging with my colleagues at the university, to working with the superb collection of Japanese prints in the Chazen Museum of Art, and, most of all, to interacting with the students. It is my goal to inspire in them an enduring interest in and appreciation of Japanese art and culture no matter where life takes them in their post-college years.” Keep an eye on our upcoming newsletters and social media accounts for more information about Prof. Bennett’s Fall 2022 course! Congratulations Prof. Bennett!!!
