Join us for this workshop hosted by the School of Arts at SOAS. Museum curators, librarians, and academics will share their expertise in managing and utilizing Korean objects in their collections in UK institutions. They will also discuss the collecting histories and practices that have formed and shaped these collections. This workshop is part of a provenance research project based on UK collections, ‘The Korean art collecting activities of British diplomats, businessmen and missionaries, 1880-1930,’ funded by the Overseas Korean Cultural Heritage Foundation (OKCHF). The event is open to the public and free of charge, taking place in the Djam Lecture Theatre (DLT) of the SOAS main building on Saturday, November 18th, with tea and lunch provided. We look forward to your participation.
