China Beyond East & West Workshop, University of South Carolina, April 16, 2016

This weekend I am very excited to participate in a workshop hosted by the Center for Asian Studies at the University of South Carolina.

Michael Gibbs Hill has assembled a wonderful group of folks to discuss how our work explores notions of exchange between Chinese and Middle Eastern cultures and languages. I am humbled to be included with this group of amazing scholars.
