2017 LAC Pre-Conference Workshop Registration: World on the Horizon: Swahili Arts across the Indian Ocean (Wed. Nov. 15, 12pm-5pm, Krannert Art Museum, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign)
This pre-conference workshop, sponsored by the Local Arrangements Committee, will be held in the Krannert Art Museum on the campus of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), and will feature a major new exhibit of 150 artworks on loan from public and private collections on four continents, displaying the global reach of Swahili material culture. This is an opportunity to see and discuss the exhibit while it is in the Midwest; in 2018 it will travel to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, and to the Fowler Museum at UCLA. The workshop will include introductory lectures, a detailed gallery tour and group discussions. Sponsors at UIUC will provide free accommodation for the evening of November 15 for the first 20 registrants who request accommodations, free parking and an evening meal. Workshop participants can then continue to Chicago for the ASA Annual Meeting. UIUC is a 2.5 hour drive or Amtrak ride from Chicago.
