Dyes in History & Archaeology: 33rd Annual Conference

About the conference

Wednesday 29th October to Saturday 1st November 2014

The Centre for Textile Conservation and Technical Art History at the University of Glasgow is delighted to host DHA33, the 33rd annual international conference for Dyes in History and Archaeology.

DHA conferences are dedicated to the interdisciplinary exchange of the latest research in the history, production, application, characterisation and preservation of natural and synthetic dyes and organic pigments relevant to cultural heritage and the arts world-wide.

As in previous years, DHA33 aims to attract an audience of local, national and international academics, students and professionals in science, history, ethnography and conservation from universities, research institutions, museums and galleries worldwide as well as independent scholars and interested members of the public.

Presentations will take place on Thursday 30th and Friday 31st October, in the Bute Hall on the main University campus in the West End of Glasgow. It is anticipated that selected DHA33 presentations will be published as peer-reviewed post-print.

The optional social programme includes a tour of the Centre, welcome receptions, a conference dinner and an excursion.

We look forward very much to welcoming you in October.
