Susan Dine (Oakland University, B.A.; University of Washington, M.A.; University of Michigan, Ph.D.) teaches courses on Asian art history and museum studies. Her research areas are premodern Japanese art history, particularly Buddhist visual cultures, and museum studies and practice with a focus on accessibility. She is engaged in a book project on representations of language in medieval Buddhist visual cultures, exploring connections between language, bodies, and materialities.
