Dr. Aurelia Campbell

Boston College and the Fine Arts Department are thrilled to welcome Dr. Aurelia Campbell to our faculty. Our new Assistant Professor of Asian Art History received her Ph.D. in East Asian Languages and Civilizations from the University of Pennsylvania, and her BA in Art History and Studio Art from Pitzer College. Dr. Campbell's research focuses on Chinese architecture of the early modern period, and she is currently at work on a book about the geographically widely distributed construction projects undertaken by the Ming dynasty Emperor Yongle. Although she's busy preparing for her first semester teaching here at BC, Dr. Campbell kindly took time out to answer some of our questions about her background, interests, and thoughts about her new position.

Fine Arts Featured Story

Student Profile

Daniel Zawodney '14

Daniel Zawodny '14 has known since before starting college that he wanted to combine his interest in photography and film with his ambition to help "bring the world together." In this first-person account, the Film Studies major describes how his courses and relationships with his instructors and peers at BC have prepared and supported him in this endeavor. Traveling to Guatemala last summer with Actuality Media, a program for documentary filmmaking students, Danny was able to put his skills and knowledge to work in order to share with a greater public the story of a Mayan fishermen's cooperative dedicated to preserving the health of Lake Atitlan and their native culture.
