Global Forum: The Silk Road – Past & Present Iterations Part II – ASU Melikian Center

April 5 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Linking Shanghai and Beijing across Eurasia to Constantinople and the West, the Silk Roads were for centuries a major route of global cultural exchange.  Today, China’s ambitious new “Belt and Road” infrastructure projects will rebuild and extend this network of overland connections.

In Part II of this series, experts from different academic backgrounds – history, art, anthropology, and music – examine the significance of the Silk Road and discuss ways to introduce students to this important thoroughfare of world history.  A panel of community college educators from Cochise College and Arizona Western College will highlight the projects they developed from a Fulbright-Hays program in Central Asia this past summer.
