Ananda Coomaraswamy Memorial Conference on Asian Art and Culture
The Centre for Asian Studies at University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka, organises the Ananda Coomaraswamy Memorial Conference on Asian Art and Culture on 8–10 September 2012. The conference coincides with the 135th birth anniversary and 65th death anniversary of Ananda Coomaraswamy, renowned Ceylonese philosopher and metaphysician, as well as a pioneering historian and philosopher of Indian art (particularly art history and symbolism). He was an early interpreter of Indian culture to the West.
Deadline for submitting abstracts is 15 June 2012. In addition to the conference proceedings, the organisers plan to launch a commemoration volume on Ananda Coomaraswamy. Particiants interested in having their papers published in this volume, should announce this by 15 July 2012. Full information about the conference.
