The University of Amsterdam (UvA), the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands (RCE), the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and the ErfgoedAcademie (HeritageAcademy) are honoured to host the 38st Dyes in History and Archaeology (DHA) conference in Amsterdam on 7 and 8 November 2019.

The Dyes in History and Archaeology (DHA) is an annual conference that focuses on the discussion of dyes and organic pigments applied in the past. This includes their history, production, application and properties, as well as their analytical characterisation and identification, mainly in textile objects, but also on painted surfaces. Every year, the meeting attracts conservators, curators, (technical) art historians, craftsmen, artists, independent scholars, scientists and academics from museums, universities, research centres and other public or private institutions.

The call for abstracts for oral and poster presentations is now open, deadline for application is June 15, 2019.

Registration is also open! There is a maximum of 125 places and these will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Early booking is therefore highly recommended.

More information on how to register or how to submit an abstract can be found on the website: www.DHA38.nl
