- Jennifer DatchukDatchukJenniferAssistant Professor, CeramicsEmail: email@example.comOffice: JCM 1123Phone: 512.245.3776
Jennifer Ling Datchuk is an artist born in Warren, Ohio and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Her mother came to this country in the early 1970s from China; her father born and raised in Ohio to Russian and Irish immigrant parents.

She captures this conflict by exploring the emotive power of domestic objects and rituals that fix, organize, soothe and beautify our lives. Trained in ceramics, the artist works with porcelain and other materials often associated with traditional women’s work, such as textiles and hair, to discuss fragility, beauty, femininity, intersectionality, identity and personal history.

She has received grants from the Artist Foundation of San Antonio, travel grant from Artpace, and the Linda Lighton International Artist Exchange Program to research the global migrations of porcelain and blue and white pattern decoration.

- Jeffrey LieberLieberJeffreyAssociate Professor, Art HistoryEmail: email@example.comOffice: JCM 3114Phone: 512.245.2193
Jeffrey Lieber teaches the history of architecture and design, and more generally, the history of art and visual culture. He is best known for his book, Flintstone Modernism or the Crisis in Postwar American Culture (The MIT Press, 2018), which received critical praise from scholars across the humanities for its innovative interdisciplinary approach and for its expansion of a queer history of modernism. Highlighting iconic buildings within the contexts of advertisements, fashion magazines, Hollywood films, and TV specials, his book surveys anxieties about the fate of the Classical tradition and durability of art in the postwar era, and advances a new approach to camp aesthetics. Lieber's 2018 New York Times op-ed, “What Do We Lose When the Union Carbide Buildings Falls?” sparked debate over the meaning of mid-20th century architecture in the U.S. His wide-ranging interests in the field have been sponsored by the Delmas Foundation Grant for Independent Research in Venice to cite one example, and are reflected in his curation of provocative film series at the Harvard Film Archive, University of California, Santa Cruz, and The New School. He received his AB from Vassar College and his PhD in art history from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
