The Georgetown-IDP Project for North American Collections developed from conversations between Susan Whitfield, Miki Morita and myself that began in spring 2015, following Susan’s trip to Georgetown University to deliver a well-received talk on IDP and the landscape of international collaboration in the Critical Silk Road Studies Seminar, a year-long series of events supported by the Mellon Foundation that I co-organized at Georgetown in 2014-2015.

At that time, it quickly became obvious that the combination of Miki’s prior experience in similar projects and the resources and academic community for Silk Road studies at Georgetown and in the Washington, DC area were an ideal fit for convening this project, representing a major step forward for the large-scale incorporation of Silk Road artefacts in North American collections into the IDP database for the first time.

Closer to home, Miki and I examined paintings in Washington, DC’s Arthur M.

Sackler Gallery and the Turfan slides from the Führerprojekt in the National Gallery of Art this spring.

Moving forward, plans are currently underway for a series of on-site workshops in museums and libraries that will provide opportunities for hands-on engagement with a selection of these artefacts.

They re ect not only the cultural heritage of the premodern Silk Road in a diverse range of media but also its modern discovery and the twentieth century taste for collecting Central Asian antiquities. Wang is Assistant Professor in the Department of Art and Art History at Georgetown University.A stucco head from Turfan in PAM was donated by Horace Jayne (PAM, 1928-23-1).Ellsworth Huntington (1876-1947) was a geographer interested in the effect of climate change on human civilization.To date, more than 1300 manuscripts, objects, and archival materials have been identifed as fitting within the scope of IDP.This number includes very fragmentary pieces and increases if we include collections that we have not had the opportunity to examine.During my time as Georgetown-IDP Research Fellow, I have contacted institutions with known holdings of IDP-related pieces.
