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.

What is the wingspan of a Jayhawk? At Commencement 2015 we found out. Some graduates were walking — flying — down the hill with arms around each other’s shoulders. Others lifted their hands to the sky with exultant shouts. Fist pumps, high fives, and bear hugs. This was a day to greet with open arms. They wouldn’t make the sleeves of graduation gowns so oversized unless they wanted us to spread our wings. What is the wingspan of a Jayhawk? Wide enough to soar to the great heights that await us.
