Chinese Manuscripts from Bamboo Slips to Buddhist Scrolls: Forms and Practices, Continuities and Innovations

The event was held on September 16-17 at the Needham Research Institute and was attended by 20 scholars, plus about the same number of non-presenting participants. In addition to Glorisun, which was the main sponsor, we also had support from the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies and Robinson College. The conference was highly successful and was by all accounts a worthwhile event.
