Save the date for the CARC 2019 workshop: Textile Art in the Graeco-Roman World, 26th-27th September 2019

We are delighted to announce the subject of our 2019 CARC workshop, kindly supported by Jean-David Cahn and Tony Michaels.  Textile Art in the Graeco-Roman World will focus on the visual imagery of ancient textiles from Archaic Greece to late antiquity, asking questions about a fundamentally important art tradition which we glimpse through extraordinary chance survivals and representations in other media. The international workshop will take place in Oxford on Thursday 26th and Friday 27th September. The draft abstract is downloadable here and we will be announcing details in the coming months. All are welcome and you can book now for free by emailing
