: Dear Jerry,
: thanks for introducing this topic, which I feel is apt, and certainly interesting. However, I must say that the over whelming question that comes to my mind is: Why do traditional academics tend to avoid Oriental Carpet Conferences?
: Any ideas?
: all best - saul
Damn fine question, Saul. Especially when I think it was the concensus opinion at ACOR IV that the most interesting lecture was Henry Glassie's, the ethnologist from Indiana University who spoke about rug-weaving in Turkey from the perspective of the young women who do the weaving.
