Gold in Southeast Asia

May 13–14, 2011

Organized in celebration of the gift of the Hunter Thompson Collection of Javanese gold to the Gallery, this symposium coincided with an exhibition of objects from the collection and with the Gallery’s publication 
of a new edition of John Miksic’s catalogue Old Javanese Gold, first published in 1990 
and now brought up to date to reflect important archaeological discoveries. Miksic presented the keynote Andrew Carnduff Ritchie Lecture, and scholars from around the world presented papers on the meaning of gold in Southeast Asia. Made possible by the Council on Southeast Asia Studies at Yale University.
