RCAST is pleased to announce a seminar by Prof. Lisa Blaydes, a leading political scientist whose main field of research has been the Middle East, on the re-arising connectivity between China and the Muslim West. Based on her fresh-from-the-oven article, she explores historical and institutional conditions for the patterns of growth and stagnation of cities along the “Silk Roads.” Implications to the present-day Chinese advance to the Middle East are also to be discussed. Prof. Hiroki Takeuchi, an erudite scholar specialized in Chinese politics responds to her propositions.
