We are very pleased the announce the establishment of the P.Y. and Kinmay
W. Tang Center for Silk Road Studies, under the auspices of the Institute
of East Asian Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. Supported
by a generous gift by the Tang family, the TCSRS is the first center for
Silk Road studies in North America.
By institutionalizing *Silk Road* studies, the TCSRS aims to transcend
longstanding boundaries that have challenged and constricted area studies.
