Julie Nelson Davis, Professor of History of Art, has received a 2021 fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. She is among 184 writers, scholars, artists, and scientists chosen as fellows in the U.S. and Canada from nearly 3,000 applicants.

She was the founding director of the Penn Forum on Japan and co-founder of the Penn Faculty Working Group for Reading Asian Manuscripts. Nelson is the author of Utamaro and the Spectacle of Beauty, Partners in Print: Artistic Collaboration and the Ukiyo-e Market, and the forthcoming Picturing the Floating World: Ukiyo-e in Context.
