There is still time! The call for papers for the IIC 2014 Hong Kong Congress has been extended ...
... the deadline for submission of proposals is now 31st May 2013!
An Unbroken History: Conserving East Asian Works of Art and Heritage is a theme uniquely suited to Hong Kong's wealth of cultural heritage, as well as to its role as a point of exchange between Chinese heritage and the cultures of the rest of the world.
Potential topics include: scroll paintings and calligraphy; prints; textiles and costumes; wall paintings; sculpture; furniture and lacquer wares; jewellery, ceramics and metalwork of all varieties; the conservation of the built heritage; the intangible cultural heritage of performance, traditions and customs and the conservation of other heritage where the influence of East Asia is very evident, for example in such styles as Chinoiserie.
Full details of the Call for Papers and its requirements (including guidance on geographical focus of the topic) can be found here:
