Wen-Shing Chou specializes in art of China and the Himalayas. She holds a BA in Art History from the University of Chicago (2001), and a MA and PhD in History of Art from University of California, Berkeley (2011). Chou’s research focuses on the relationship between religion and empiricism in early modern visuality, and the intersection of history, geography, and biography in Buddhist traditions. Her first book, Mount Wutai: Visions of a Sacred Buddhist Mountain (Princeton University Press, 2018) examines the Inner Asian transformation of the Buddhist pilgrimage site of Mount Wutai in northern China during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
