9th Conference on Ibadi Studies
University of Peking and the Department of Foreign Languages
17 – 19 September 2018
"China and the World: Development and Cooperation from the Perspective of the Belt and Road Initiative. Diachronic and Cross-Border Transmission of Ibadi Knowledge"
The conference will bring together world specialists in the field to explore and discuss the historical relationships and transmission of knowledge that developed through a series of networks known as the the terrestrial Silk Road and the maritime Silk Route. This transmission took place thanks to a process of cultural exchange between the East Asia and the rest of the Eurasia that began as early as the 11th century BCE. The conference will in particular investigate the interaction of Chinese and Ibadi knowledge within these land-based and maritime networks.
