13-14 May 2005, University of Massachusetts at Amherst

This Conference was built around a lecture by Steven Sage on the undeciphered Ba-Shu script, and explored that and several related problems: early Chinese geographical knowledge of the Southwest, Indo-Sinitic culture contacts over the southwestern route, Indian text chronology, and the reliability of the Shr Ji as a source for information on the cultures peripheral to Han and earlier China.
