We are writing to alert you to an exciting and intellectually rewarding way to spend a month this summer. The Silk Roads: Early Globalizations and Chinese Cultural Identities is a 5-week Summer Residential Institute funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, and hosted by the Asian Studies Development Program, a partnership between the East-West Center and University of Hawai’i.
This Institute will make use of the rich history and imaginaire of the Silk Roads as a way of examining how global interconnectedness shapes and is shaped by culture, focusing in particular on how China’s complex relationships with other cultures—mediated by both overland and oceanic “silk roads”—has been crucial to the emergence of distinctively Chinese cultures over the last two millennia.
Dates: May 24-June 25, 2010
Deadline: March 2, 2010 (post-mark)
NEH Stipend: Participants will receive a total stipend of $3900 to help meet costs associated with attending the Institute, including travel, housing (East-West Center guest house), meals, and required Institute texts.
