An Online Workshop Jointly Organized by the Dunhuang Academy and the University of Southern California

This workshop provides a platform for emerging scholars from East Asia and the United States to explore Silk Road material culture with new questions, approaches, and materials. The four panelists will discuss a wide range of topics related to objects and sites across Central and East Asia, focusing especially on connections across cultures, geographic regions, religious traditions, and artistic media that remain understudied. The workshop is part of a long-term plan shared by the two organizing units to deepen ties through regular academic exchange, with the hope to set a new model for meaningful, sustainable academic engagement between the U.S. and China that is built on trust, open dialogue, and shared values in learning and education.
