Silk Roads: Early Globalization and Chinese Cultural Identities


The Internet makes available a stunning - and at a times, simply overwhelming - amount of material on the Silk Roads and the cultures and societies that have been threaded together by them. Our intention on this page is to assemble links that you have either used in the past and found particularly worthwhile, or that you discover in the course of your project development research here during the program - what you might think of as "best of the Web" collection. Should you have links you deem worthy of inclusion, please send access information (URL) to either Bolor Legjeem or Sandy Osaki and we'll see that they get uploaded onto the site.
