Indian Painting: The Lesser Known Traditions
Date: 7-9 March 2008
Location: Brown Auditorium, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
Details: The last few decades have seen a flourishing of outstanding scholarship in the areas of courtly painting such as Mughal, Rajasthani, Pahari and Deccani. India, however, has an astonishing wealth of diverse painting tradition. These have not been as widely studied as they deserve, but have generally been considered and classified as ‘folk’. Thus they have tended to be neglected by mainstream scholarship. The aim of this Conference is to bring together scholars who have devoted much of their attention to such lesser known traditions.
Conference: East and West Entwined
Date: 29-30 March 2008
Location: Claremont Graduate University, Claremont, CA

What are the political, social, cultural and economic ties that have developed historically as a result of the meeting of these distinct cultures and civilizations? And in the contemporary context, too, what has been the impact of this interaction in a globalized world?
