Dunhuang & Silk Road Seminar Series, 2021

Dates: Michaelmas Term (September-December 2021)

Venue: Online via Zoom

We hold a series of talks each term whose overall theme links with Dunhuang and the Silk Road.

These take place via Zoom on Thursdays and require pre-registration. All talks will begin at 5pm UK Time, lasting an hour with time allocated afterwards 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.

This seminar series is organised by Dr Imre Galambos with the generous support of the Glorisun Global Network and Dhammachai International Research Institute.
