Assistant Professor of Art History and Humanities
Division of the Arts
Shivani Sud received her PhD in the History of Art from the University of California, Berkeley in 2022. Her current book project Jaipur and the World: Painting, Print, and Photography, ca. 1780-1920 examines painting at the regional kingdoms of Rajasthan in relation to global eighteenth- and nineteenth-century art worlds. In the past, Shivani has published essays on colonial photography in the Getty Research Journal, SmartHistory, and the British Library’s Asian and African Studies blog. Her research has been supported by the Social Science Research Council's International Dissertation Research Fellowship, the Fulbright-Nehru Fellowship, the American Institute of Indian Studies' Fellowship, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Fellowship. Shivani’s teaching situates South Asian art within a global world, with courses on environmental histories, materialities, colonial visual cultures, photography, Indian cinema, museum histories, and methodologies for a global art history.
