Emeritus and Retired Faculty
In 1964, before he completed his PhD, Stan O'Connor was invited to become an instructor in the Department of the History of Art; this was the first university-level appointment in America of a specialist in the field of Southeast Asian art. In 1971, he was appointed full professor.
James Siegel retired from full-time teaching in 2007. He is the last of the second-generation SEAP faculty to retire. Like other emeritus SEAP faculty, he retains an office at the Kahin Center and is available to help mentor future scholars of Southeast Asia.
