Classical Art and Ancient India - international workshop
Booking is now open for our next hybrid international workshop, 'Classical Art and Ancient India', which will be hosted in person in Oxford and online via Zoom on Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd March 2023. The workshop will bring together invited international speakers and a worldwide audience to address a topic very closely related to Gandhara and vital for placing classical art in its global context: the question of how much mutual artistic exchange occurred between other parts of India, Greece and Rome in antiquity, and what we stand to learn by studying their art traditions alongside each other.
Reservation, either for in person or online attendance, is free through our eventbrite page.

This colloquium builds on the success of CARC's past Gandhara Connections workshops. It is also the first event under our new #AncientArtConnections initiative. Through gatherings of this kind, as well as other research, publications, and web resources., we aim to explore many different aspects of the relationship between Greek and Roman art and the wider ancient world, across Asia, Africa, and Europe.
