Aims & Scope
The EAAA Monograph Series, entitled “European Studies in Asian Art and Archaeology” aims to publish in-depth, peer-reviewed scholarly contributions on topics relevant to Asian Art and Archaeology that treat these in a wider Asian context. The series endeavors to analyze and interpret the artistic and cultural heritage of ancient, modern and contemporary social realities in Asian societies, and to contribute in this way to a deeper understanding of the cultural, philosophical, political, sociological, religious and ideological values of Asia as a whole. The EAAA Series goal is to publish innovative research that will have a lasting impact by opening new research questions, which will help trace new theoretical and methodological pathways in the field of art history.

Production, Distribution and Appreciation: New Aspects of East Asian Lacquer Wares
Patricia Frick & Annette Kieser (ed.)
This volume evolved from a panel on East Asian lacquer ware that was part of the first EAAA conference in Olomouc in 2014. It focuses on various aspects of Asian lacquer art ranging from the 2nd century BC to the 17th century. Recent excavations of lacquer ware from tombs in China, distribution of lacquer objects throughout the Eurasian region, the significance of lacquer ware in every-day life, technical aspects of lacquer production in Korea and the appreciation of Japanese lacquer in Asia and Europe are analyzed by international experts in the field.
