Photographs included in this collection were taken during faculty site seminars in Gansu, Ningxia, and Xinjiang Provinces in 2006, seminars in Sichuan and Yunnan during the summer of 2007, visits to Liao Dynasty sites in Shanxi, Liaoning, Hebei, and Inner Mongolia during the summer of 2008, a program along the Tarim Basin and in northern Xinjiang during the summer of 2009, and a program for educators in Gansu, Qinghai, Sichuan, and Tibet Extension during the summer of 2010.
