Professor Bickford engages in object-centered research in the history of painting in China during the Song and Yuan periods. Her work ranges from genre-formation in scholar-amateur ink painting to production and reception of imperial art. She reconstructs imperial Song initiatives in producing a definitive Chinese visual culture and investigates auspicious visuality in China.
