Research/Career Interests: 

Xue’s primary research field is pre-modern Chinese calligraphy and painting. His studies on Chinese calligraphy seek to situate this unique art form within the ongoing art historical and theoretical debates. Currently he is completing a book manuscript, titled “Eulogy for a Crane: Myth and Culture of Chinese Calligraphy,” which explores how monuments of calligraphy have continued to play a role in the social production of taste and value. Xue has also published, both in Chinese and English, on Song dynasty literature and art. His recent article, “The Literati, the Eunuch, and a Memorial: The Nelson-Atkins’s Red Cliff Painting Revisited,” reexamines the court painting production in the early 12th century. Xue’s publications appear in Artibus Asiae and Archives of Asian Art, both premium academic journals in the field.
