Hidden Stories: Global History, Local Networks
Celebrating the exhibition Hidden Stories: Books Along the Silk Roads
Join the Aga Khan Museum for a virtual symposium celebrating the exhibition Hidden Stories: Books Along the Silk Roads, featuring books, scrolls, manuscript paintings, textiles, and objects spanning a 1,000-year history. The exhibition and symposium are global — examining a vast network of trade routes spanning Asia, Europe, and Africa — and local, bringing together historical artifacts from collections across Ontario, Canada.
The Hidden Stories symposium is organized by co-curators Filiz Çakır Phillip (Aga Khan Museum) and Suzanne Conklin Akbari (Institute for Advanced Study) and supported in partnership with the Book and the Silk Roads Project, the Institute of Islamic Studies, and The Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation Centre for Buddhist Studies at the University of Toronto. View the digital exhibit here.
