Divergent Approaches to Cambodian Visual Cultures

Divergent Approaches to Cambodian Visual Cultures

December 6 - 8, 2013
Siem Reap, Cambodia
Web announcement: www.siemreapconference.org/index.php?page_id=1

The theme of the 4th Siem Reap Conference on Special Topics in Khmer Studies seeks to promote scholarship which tends to be positioned outside the traditional conventions of Khmer Art History. Participants in this international dialogue will explore theories, methodologies, eras and subject matter that have escaped the gaze of traditional Khmer art historical studies. The committee invites submissions from all disciplines including Anthropology, Archaeology, Art History, Cultural Studies, History, Philosophy and Religious Studies, with the principal requirement being that the theme of the submission relates specifically to Cambodian visual culture. Input from researchers studying Cambodian art from the middle, modern, and contemporary periods that approach their chosen material in novel and challenging ways are particularly encouraged.

Colleagues who wish to present a paper at the conference should submit a paper title and abstract (approx 150 words) by August 15, 2013 to the organising committee at committee@siemreapconference.org.
