I would like to announce the symposium, Imperial Exposure: Early Photography and Royal Portraits Across Asia, at the Freer and Sackler Galleries in Washington, DC, on December 5 and 6, 2011. Fifteen scholars from around the world will present talks on aspects of royal portraiture across Asia, from the Ottoman empire to Korea and Southeast Asia, providing a rare opportunity for a comparative dialogue on the history of photography outside of Europe.
Conference speakers include Ali Behdad, John Clark, Deepali Dewan, Holly Edwards, Maki Fukuoka, Luke Gartlan, Yi Gu, Christine Kim, Yuhang Li, Hyung Il Pai, Maurizio Peleggi, Ying-chen Peng, Claire Roberts, Mary Roberts, and Roberta Wue.
