Rock Art of the Indo-Pacific Region

As rock art can be found across the world, this panel is intended as the rock art session for the IPPA Congress, particularly for the regions in South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia, Oceania and the Pacific. Abstracts for this session are invited from scholars of archaeology, conservation and museology, art history and visual culture. We encourage submissions about rock art in our geographic area broadly defined to include both Asia and the Pacific, i.e., West Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia and Oceania. Due to the large geographic area covered by this session, we are looking especially for panelists who are able to speak to the impact of rock art in a global perspective. We encourage abstracts from authors focusing on connections between rock art sites across large distances and regions; as well as new rock art discoveries, with a particular interest in sites not previously published. In doing so, we hope to introduce rock art scholars working in their respective regions to each other, and also spark new discussions about rock art influences across borders.
