Yale Silk Road Seminar 2007: June 12-July 5 (Sichuan Yunnan Seminar)

Project Summary

The Yale Sichuan Yunnan Seminar was the second in the series of Silk Road faculty site seminars. It brought together a group of scholars to travel to Buddhist and Daoist sites in Sichuan and Yunnan provinces along the ancient Silk Road networks. Three experts on Sichuan and Yunnan cultures joined the group and provided ongoing commentary and lectures about local history and monuments: Professor Sonya Lee, whose specialization is Buddhist art of Sichuan; Professor Lei Yuhua, an archaeologist with extensive knowledge of Sichuan regional culture; and Professor Lothar von Falkenhausen, a distinguished specialist on the Neolithic cultures of Sichuan and Yunnan who has excavated widely in the region.
