Color in Islamic Art and Culture
The Third Biennial Hamad bin Khalifa Symposium in Islamic Art, to be held November 2-4, 2009 at the University of Cordoba (Spain), will address the theme of color in Islamic art and civilization. The organizers Sheila Blair and Jonathan Bloom invite prospective speakers to submit a CV and a 250-word abstract on any aspect of this theme, ranging from the symbolic use of color to its practical applications in painting, tilework, and the like.
Speakers will be expected to present an illustrated 40-minute talk and a publishable text of approximately 5,000 words. The sponsors will cover all travel and lodging expenses between the speakers’ homes and Cordoba and will provide a generous honorarium (upon acceptance of their written text) as well as a copy of the published proceedings.
