Inter-area/Border Crossing

Organized Panel Session

Clay Pots, Culture and Heritage

Saturday, July 7
10:20 AM - 11:50 AM
Location: Rudraksha, Lower Ground Floor

Asia is home to a great geographic diversity of landforms and landscapes which in turn has influenced the many different lifestyles and cultural strategies found within this world region. From forest dwellers to desert pastoralists, pluralist kingdoms as well as communities of singular aesthetics, on islands, mainlands, and peninsulas, the great range of cultural expression is astounding. This panel will explore one thread that interconnects all communities regardless of size or complexity: the use of clay containers as both functional tools and as mediums of cultural aesthetics and/or worldview. We welcome papers that delve into the interrelationships between containers, especially clay pots, and any aspect of cultural heritage in Asia. It is hoped that multiple perspectives and varied contexts of containers will lead to a lively discussion of the role of this ordinary good within the many cultural heritage of Asia.
