The Silk Road
- Saturday, September 30
- Conway Hall 179
- 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
The age of the west is at a crossroads. Increasingly, it appears to be rebalancing towards the east. In the east, meanwhile, the Silk Road is rising again – networks and connections are quietly appearing across the spine of Asia. For millennia, the Silk Road facilitated the exchange of peoples, goods, religions, ideas, technologies, and pathogens between the Pacific Ocean and the Mediterranean. Is the world’s center of gravity shifting back to a region that once dominated the intellectual, cultural and economic landscape? Join us for the Adventures in Ideas Seminar to explore the rich history of the Silk Road and to contemplate together its future. Featuring Dr. Emin Lelic, associate professor of history and Dr. Hong Yao, professor of economics and finance.
