The 41st annual Textile Museum Fall Symposium will explore themes raised in the concurrent exhibition Out of Southeast Asia: Art That Sustains. There are over one-thousand ethnic  groups in Southeast Asia, many with unique textile traditions—yet this region is seeing increased development and globalization that is challenging the continuation of these long-inherited art forms. Join us for an engaging weekend that will bridge the fields of art history, anthropology, international development, and design.

Through five dynamic presentations, a roundtable discussion, curators' tour and the popular interactive "Show and Tell” session for collectors, "From Village and Court to Global Commodity: Southeast Asian Textiles” will shed light on the many ways regional textile arts are adapting to the twenty-first century.

The Textile Museum is pleased to offer ten scholarships for this year’s annual Fall Symposium, "From Village and Court to Global Commodity: Southeast Asian Textiles,” October 11–13, 2013 in Washington, D.C.

Undergraduate and graduate students in Southeast Asian studies, art history, anthropology, or a textile-related course of study are invited to apply. The scholarship will cover the cost of symposium registration for each recipient; it is not a cash award.

The Textile Museum believes that this scholarship opportunity at its annual symposium is a tangible way to express the museum’s commitment to academic leadership in textile research and will ensure that the next generation of textile experts receives the unique and in-depth knowledge that can only come at a conference such as this.
