Alice Ming Wai Jim — Emerging Award
Alice Ming Wai Jim, an associate professor in the Department of Art History, began at Concordia in 2006. She teaches courses on contemporary art, media art, ethnocultural art histories, international art exhibitions and curatorial studies.
“My teaching aspires to the same values of diversity, accessibility, innovation and academic excellence that I’ve seen at the university since time I arrived,” she said.
As a researcher, Jim investigates contemporary Asian and Asian-Canadian art, with a focus on recent media art, theories of representation and the relationship between remix culture and place identity. She carries her enthusiasm for those subjects into the classroom.
“My pedagogical practice, learning activities and assignments are oriented and designed to increase the ability of students of all learning styles to succeed in my courses.”
