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.

KU in the news
It’s your freshman year. Want to get started with academic success and to explore interesting and important questions? We have something that can help: KU First-Year Seminars. These for-credit courses provide KU freshmen with an early opportunity to deeply explore big and exciting questions in an academic content area of their choosing. Timothy McGinnis, a journalism and environmental studies student, said his seminar "made me realize that you don't have to take classes based on your major in order to learn something. Broaden your knowledge...take new classes to see if it interests you." Delve into your interests - be a Jayhawk and explore a First-Year Seminar.
