The recent workshop 'Textiles & Identity in the Medieval and Early Modern Mediterranean' held at the Benaki Museum of Islamic Art on 3-4 June received a positive review in the most recent issue of Hali magazine (vol. 188, Summer 2016 http://shop.hali.com/issue/HALI188/summer-2016):
"There was substance beneath a collection of fashionable academic terms when the British School at Athens hosted a workshop in the Greek capital in early June 2016.... The first day saw an ambitious programme of short talks by international academics and museum professionals, followed by a day of studying examples of the objects under scrutiny at various outposts of the Benaki Museum."
Congratulations to Richard Bradford McConnell Student Nikolaos Vryzidis who organised the workshop!
