Plov veach kom borss borng (Don’t abandon the indirect road): Divergent Approaches to Cambodian Visual Cultures

Siem Reap, 6-8 December, 2013

The annual Siem Reap Conference on Special Topics in Khmer Studies is designed to bring together the foremost experts in a very specific subject area, over two or three days, with a view to advancing scholarship in that particular domain.

Following previous successful conferences on Epigraphy & Databases (2009-10), Archaeometallurgy (2011) and the History of Religions (2012), the organising committee of the annual Siem Reap Conference on Special Topics in Khmer Studies is pleased to announce that the meeting will be dedicated, in 2013, to the topic of Art History and Visual Cultures.

Divergent Approaches to Cambodian Visual Cultures, 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.

Colleagues who wish to present a paper at the conference should submit a paper title and abstract (approx 150 words) by August 15th, 2013 to the organising committee. Attendance of the conference is free. Detailed information can be found on the conference homepage
