Fields Hall

Dawn Odell specializes in Chinese and early modern European art and teaches a variety of courses engaging these regions, including classes on East Asian print culture, comparative approaches to European and East Asian art of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and contemporary Chinese art. Professor Odell’s research focuses on the exchange of material goods and artistic practices between Asia and Europe in the early modern period, with a particular emphasis on the Dutch engagement with China. She has published articles on the seventeenth-century Dutch travel book author Johan Nieuhof, Chinese export porcelain, Dutch and Chinese ethnographies, and early Sinology in Europe. Her most recent research explores the visual culture of seventeenth-century Batavia (present-day Jakarta) and its diverse population of Chinese, Indonesia and Dutch inhabitants.
