Dr. Delin Lai promoted to full professor

The UofL Board of Trustees has approved the promotion of Dr. Delin Lai to full professor. Congratulations!

In the last five years, Dr. Lai has published eight key works, including two books, five articles in refereed journals, and one book chapter. His most recent book "The History of Modern Chinese Architecture" is a five-volume anthology published in August 2016, sponsored by the National Publication Foundation of China. Professor Lai was the chief editor of this book project, working with co-editors Drs. Wu Jiang, and Xu Subin, and over 50 scholars and 30 researchers from 32 universities in Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, France, Germany, and the United States to complete this extensive book project. This book is a significant landmark in the study of modern Chinese cities and architecture, and will provide a new foundation for the future development in this field.

Dr. Delin Lai has been the Head of the Art History Program since fall 2014. He was a recipient of the 2015 University of Louisville Distinguished Faculty Award in Outstanding Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity in the Humanities.
