The Bodhi Tree and the Orchid: A Symposium in Honor of Catherine B. Asher and Frederick M. Asher
We invite you to attend "The Bodhi Tree and the Orchid: A Symposium in Honor of Catherine B. Asher and Frederick M. Asher" to be held in Chicago Illinois on February 15, 2014, in conjunction with the College Art Association meetings.
The day-long symposium will include art and architectural history of the Islamic world and South Asia, spanning the 15th century to the present. (See below for the program; abstracts of the papers are available on the website.) Participants include many of those who benefited from the Ashers' generous and collaborative teaching and mentorship; we hope those of you who join us can add your voices to the celebratory conversation, both during the day and at dinner that evening.
Please save the date, and check our website, http://ashers2014.wordpress.com/
for the symposium program, updates, and registration information as the date comes closer. We look forward to celebrating the Ashers' vibrant and on-going careers, and hope to see many of you next February in Chicago.
