Intercultural Workshop Series #4: The Silk Road

Series #4: The Silk Road

Tuesday, June 29, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 9:40 AM EDT

The Silk Road was initiated and globalized by Chinese exploration and conquests in Central Asia. The Silk Road was and is a network of trade routes connecting the East and West, and was central to the economic, cultural, political, and religious interactions between these regions from the 2nd century BCE to the 18th century. The Silk Road primarily refers to the land but also sea routes connecting East Asia and Southeast Asia with South Asia, Persia, the Arabian Peninsula, East Africa and Southern Europe. The Silk Road trade played a significant role in the development of the civilizations of China, Korea, Japan, the Indian subcontinent, Iran, Europe, the Horn of Africa and Arabia, opening long-distance political and economic relations between these civilizations. Though silk was the major trade item exported from China, many other goods and ideas were exchanged, including religions (especially Buddhism), syncretic philosophies, sciences, and technologies like paper and gunpowder. So in addition to economic trade, the Silk Road was a route for cultural trade among the civilizations along its network.

Join us on June 29, 9 AM EDT for a discussion of how the Silk Road was formed and the impact on the world’s economy and politics.

Series #3: The Warring States of China

Intercultural Workshop Series Preview _3_ The Warring States

Tuesday, May 25, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 9:40 AM

We celebrate the Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month by offering a complementary preview of our cultural awareness workshops every last Tuesday morning at 9AM ET. Our topic this month is a reflection on the Warring States Period of China which was an era in ancient Chinese history characterized by warfare, as well as bureaucratic and military reforms and consolidation. It followed the Spring and Autumn period and concluded with the Qin wars of conquest that saw the annexation of all other contender states, which ultimately led to the Qin state’s victory in 221 BC as the first unified Chinese empire, known as the Qin dynasty.

It was also an era of great cultural and intellectual expansion in China that fostered the flourishing of the “Hundred Schools of Thought”, when a broad range of thoughts and ideas were developed and debated freely.

Join us in an exploratory discussion of this important period in China’s history and take a look at some of the greatest philosophers whose thoughts influenced generations and generations of people in East Asian countries and all over the world.
