Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art, Concordia University, and Asian/Pacific/American Institute, New York University. An art historian and curator, her research on diasporic art in Canada and contemporary Asian art has generated new dialogues within and between ethnocultural and global art histories, critical race theory, media arts, and curatorial studies.

Jim is a member of the College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists of the Royal Society of Canada (RSC).
