First Conference of the European Association of Asian Art and Archeology, September 25-27, Olomouc, Czech Republic

Olomouc squareIn a little less than two weeks from now, the city of Olomouc (in the east of the Czech Republic) will host the first European Association of Asian Art and Archeology (EAAA) conference. Participants of this three day event may expect an interesting program. Over one hundred papers will be presented, addressing a wide range of subjects from pre-historic China to contemporary art in India and Pakistan. At this first conference there are only a few papers dedicated to Japanese art. Among the presenters in the field of Japanese art are Helena Honcoopova, Melanie Trede and Christine Guth.

The European Association of Asian Art and Archeology is a still young association, founded in 2012. Its main objective is to encourage and stimulate academic and scholarly activities in the field of Asian art and archeology in all countries in Europe. The conference is jointly organized by the EAAA and the Department of Asian Studies at Palacký University Olomouc.
