Asian Art and History
The Ancient Spice and Silk Trade Routes Have Been Given New Life

Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning


Dru Gladney, Ph.D., Professor and Chair of Anthropology, Pomona College

The ancient spice and silk trade routes have been given new life with China’s modern Silk Road initiative. This talk will discuss the rise, fall and rise again of these important trade routes, which have intermittently linked Europe with China for the last two millennia.

This presentation is part of the Asian Art and History series.

Dr. Gladney will be presenting his lecture virtually. Ticket holders can either attend an in-person screening of his virtual lecture in the Signature Event Space at ArtisNaples or they can participate via Zoom. Patrons attending virtually will be sent access information as the date of the event approaches.
