Deborah Hutton, Associate Professor of Asian and Islamic art history, joined The College of New Jersey in 2004. Her specific area of focus is Indo-Islamic art, but she teaches a range of courses covering the arts of Central, South, and East Asia from the Bronze Age to the present. These courses include Arts of South Asia, Arts of East Asia, Arts of the Islamic World, and upper level seminars on subjects such as the history of photography in India. Deborah takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of art history and strives to incorporate innovative assignments into her courses. Students will learn about revolutionary posters and contemporary Asian-American art, as well as ancient artifacts, monumental architecture, paintings, ceramics, and textiles.
Deborah's scholarship examines the relationships between art, identity formation, and intercultural exchange at the princely courts that ruled over the Deccan region of India between the 16th and early 20th centuries. Her latest research project looks at the images that the celebrated late 19th-century Indian photographer, Raja Deen Dayal, took for the Nizam of Hyderabad. The resulting book, Deen Dayal: Vision, Modernity, and Photographic Culture in Late Nineteenth-Century India, that she co-authored with Deepali Dewan (Royal Ontario Museum), will be published in 2012. Her first book, The Art of the Court of Bijapur, which traces the development of painting and architecture at Adil Shahi Bijapur during the 16th and 17th centuries, won the American Institute of Indian Studies Edward Cameron Dimock Jr. Prize in the Indian Humanities, and was published by Indiana University Press in 2006. Deborah also co-edited with Rebecca Brown (Johns Hopkins University) Asian Art: An Anthology (2006) as well as the follow-up volume, Blackwell Companion to Asian Art (2011).
Deborah received her PhD and MA from the University of Minnesota and her BA from Penn State University. She previously taught for the University of Pittsburgh's Semester at Sea study abroad program and at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY.
