As part of the partnership between Sorbonne University and the National Autonomous University of Mexico - UNAM, the Observatory of Heritage of the Sorbonne University Alliance (OPUS) and the LANCIC (Laboratorio Nacional de Ciencias para la Investigación y Conservación del Patrimonio Cultural, National Laboratory for the Research and Conservation of Cultural Heritage) of UNAM are organizing the second edition of a week-long summer school in Paris (France) on the subject of the materiality of color. The program will be conducted in English.

After the first edition in Mexico City in 2022, this second summer school entitled “Inventing, analysing and restoring color” will bring together art history and heritage science. The objective of this interdisciplinary event is to invite students in art history, heritage science, archaeology, chemistry and physics to discover and experiment with new methodologies in order to better understand the materiality of color.

Applications are open to 1st and 2nd year master’s students, as well as doctoral candidates from Sorbonne University and UNAM working on the theme of color and materiality across all disciplines (humanities, arts, and sciences.)

The summer school will be free of charge and Sorbonne University will offer lunch and coffee breaks to all participants.
