Project on Art, Archaeology, and the First Emperor
Principal Investigator: Lillian Tseng (Associate Professor, Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, NYU)
This workshop is part of a multi-year project that invites scholars in Chinese, Central Asian, and Greco-Roman studies to examine together the archaeological sites and finds near the mausoleum of the First Emperor in China and to exchange ideas and research results at NYU’s campuses in Shanghai and in New York. A core group of NYU faculty, from New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi, will provide continuity through the series. International scholars from other institutions will participate in different workshops. The goal is to develop a global approach to the study of the ancient world.
