Color in Ancient and Medieval East Asia

Hosted in by the Spencer Museum of Art and The Commons and led by Research Curator Mary Dusenbury, this symposium will bring together an international and interdisciplinary team of scholars to explore the roles of color in the society, politics, ideas, art, and ritual practices of ancient and medieval East Asia. In conjunction with the symposium, the Spencer will feature a small interdisciplinary exhibition. Color in Ancient and Medieval East Asia is the natural outgrowth of a fall 2010 colloquium at KU supported by The Commons Research Initiative in Nature and Culture. This symposium is supported by a grant from The Henry Luce Foundation.
