This Study Group will be online.

Study Group
The Silk Route is a collection of pathways that, together, link China to Vienna, Istanbul, Baghdad, and India across the Inner Asian steppe and desert. During our meetings participants will discuss the Silk Route as a cultural conduit, on the one hand, as the source of empire and technologies, on the other, and look at specific examples of cultural dissemination. The Silk Route has provided some of the most engaging and best written volumes of travel literature.
There will be no required readings, but students may enjoy Owen Lattimore's The Desert Road to Turkestan, from 1928, or the Franciscan William of Rubruck's account of his journey to Karakorum in 1255.
This study group led by Rudi Lindner will meet for five Wednesdays beginning March 3.
Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
