Oxford Centre for Asian Archaeology, Art and Culture
The Oxford Centre of Asian Archaeology, Art and Culture (OCAAAC) is an organization that fosters academic exchange, innovative research and specialized training in the fields of archaeology, art history and cultural heritage in continental Asia. The Centre is housed within the University of Oxford’s School of Archaeology (Oxford, UK) and the broad spectrum of expertise provided by its members and affiliates, enables it to offer a unique and expanding programme of primary research and teaching.
Its growing profile now attracts visiting researchers and students from all over the world who contribute significantly to the academic vitality of both the Centre and the School of Archaeology as a whole. The Centre actively campaigns for preservation of heritage sites, presents innovative public outreach events, and hosts a regular series of scholarly seminars under the banner of the OCAAAC Asian Archaology Seminar Series. Further information about upcoming talks and activities can be found on our website.
The Centre, established over ten years ago by Professor Dame Jessica Rawson and Professor Chris Gosden, has received substantial financial support from the University of Oxford as well as from a number of private donors in Taiwan, Japan and Mainland China. We are currently seeking support for student scholarships and a new Assistant Professorship in Siberian Archaeology.
