Vernon Press invites book chapter proposals for a forthcoming interdisciplanary volume on the subject of "Silk Road".

The concept of “Silk Road (Chinese: 丝绸之路)” is often depicted as a transnational network of trade routes connecting the West and East, approximately from 200 BCE to 1800 CE. The economic, political, cultural, and religious interactions usually refers to certain land routes (Mediterranean Sea, Middle East and Central Asia), but it also include sea routes that connect East Asia and Southeast Asia with South Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, East Africa and Southern Europe.

The European Association for the Study of Religion (EASR) was held at the University of Pisa, Italy in 2021. As part of the conference, there was a special panel on the subject of “Silk Road”. The interdisciplinary section was successful with great feedbacks from the scholars of anthropology, religion, sociology, literature, culture, international relations, politics, policy and trade.

In this regard, we are calling critical and theoretical papers for a new book on the subject, Silk Road: Transnational Transmission of Sacred Thoughts and Literature.

If you are interested or your recent research is familiar with the topic, please submit your abstract (200-220 words), and biography (100 words, affiliation research field and 3-4 publication list) by September 30, 2022 to the book editor Dr. David W. Kim,
