Jiashu Zou is currently an MPhil student in Digital Humanities. Her previous research mainly focused on the analysis of artworks within a post-modernist framework, including topics such as the site-specificity of artwork and the spectrality in archival objects. At Cambridge, she aims to explore the application of digital tools in reexamining pre-modern East Asian visual culture, as well as the digital photographic archive in the postcolonial age. Additionally, she is also interested in using computational methods for cultural heritage preservation.
Before joining the program, she received her bachelor’s degree in Art History and East Asian Studies from the Free University of Berlin and completed a master’s degree in Curating and Collections from the University of the Arts London. She previously worked at the UCCA Center for Contemporary Art.
