Research projects

One of the key projects this year will be to establish an online database of Nanzhao and Dali material in order to share information and knowledge for future academic research. So far, we have created a preliminary database which includes over 130 objects. A more comprehensive online database is under construction and we hope to complete this – and have it accessible online – by early 2022.

In addition, in September 2020 we sent out a Call for Papers for an edited book on Nanzhao and Dali history, culture and art (in Chinese and English) and will be editing chapters over the next few months.
