Joyce Yusi Zhou

Joyce Yusi Zhou studies the visual and material culture of early modern Indonesia under Dutch colonial rule. Her dissertation recuperates the lives of women in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Batavia (present-day Jakarta, Indonesia) by attending to objects and images that were made for, made by, or made of women and their likenesses. She received her M.A. in Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture from the Bard Graduate Center and her B.A. in Art History and the Interdisciplinary Project in the Humanities (IPH) from Washington University in St. Louis.
