Registration Open: EACS Summer School 2017 “Hidden in Plain Sight: Materiality, Meaning and Accessibility of Chinese Objects in Local Collections”
4-8th Sep 2017
(New) Deadline: 15th May 2017
Chinese objects often lead seemingly dormant lives in private collections and museums across Europe, especially in small institutions without specialist curators. This workshop aims to introduce participants to the issues, both theoretical and practical, involved in researching, curating and exhibiting Chinese objects from small museums or private collections. These include questions of preservation and presentation, as well as interpretation.
We will select 20 MA and PhD students in Chinese Studies from all over Europe. Applications by advanced undergraduates will also be considered.
