The discovery in the year 1900 of more than 60,000 manuscripts holed up in a cave-shrine in northwestern China (Dunhuang, in Gansu Province) revolutionized the study of Chinese Buddhism and related fields. Now, more than 120 years later, recent advances include digital techniques, dissemination of photographs, and the internationalization of Dunhuang Studies. The workshop showcases emerging scholars at Princeton University working on Dunhuang manuscripts, in conversation with one of the most eminent scholars in the field, Chunwen Hao (Professor of Chinese History, Capital Normal University).
