Yale Silk Road Seminar 2010: July 10-August 8 (Gansu, Qinghai, Sichuan, and Tibet Extension)

Project Summary

In 2010 the fifth Yale Silk Road field study focused on ethnicity and social change in Silk Road regions of Western China. The field study explored "both the complex history of the Silk Road regions of Western China and the interactions of various ethnic groups (such as Uyghur, Tibetan and Hui) with the Han Chinese, as well as the current social, political, economic, and environmental conditions in Western China. It was designed to help college and K-12 faculty to develop enlightening curricula, to transform other professionals’ perspectives about China, and to enable participants to identify and access unique resources about China."  -Program in International Educational Resources
