Dunhuang & Silk Road Seminar Series: Lent Term 2019

Dunhuang & Silk Road Seminar Series, 2019

Dates: Lent Term (January-March 2019)

Venue: University of Cambridge, Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, Room 7

We hold a series of talks each term whose overall theme links with Dunhuang and the Silk Road. These take place in Room 7 on Thursdays. With the exception of the 24th October, all talks will begin at 3 pm, lasting an hour with time allocated afterward for questions, debate, and discussion. We welcome listeners from all fields who feel that these talks may help their own research or who are curious to know about the diverse topics covered.

Please see the original Dunhuang Seminar Series homepage here, updated for the latest term of 2019 (Michaelmas).
