Dr. Kim and Dr. Yiengpruksawan will discuss recent discoveries from their trip in Northern China along the Silk Road, an ancient web of trade routes that connected eastern and western societies. Their work concerns the intersections between Buddhism and cultures across Asia, as well as how the study of these intersections allows for greater understanding of trade in the modern era. This most recent trip, into Tangut and Kitan territories, is part of a larger initiative called the Yale Silk Road, which was started by Yiengpruksawan in 2006 and is now directed by Kim. The project has assembled over 11,000 images of major sites in the Silk Road region.
The language of the event will be English.
