The Bronze Age and Early Iron Age mummies that have been unearthed from around the edges of the Tarim Basin in Eastern Central Asia (Xinjiang, China) are one of the most important archeological discoveries of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Victor H. Mair, Professor of Chinese Language and Literature at the University of Pennsylvania, has been teaching there since 1979. He specializes in Buddhist popular literature as well as the vernacular tradition of Chinese fiction and the performing arts.

Professor Clarke has teaching commitments on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7:45 am to 9:35 am and 10:05 am to 11:55 am. If you teach during those times, we will not be able to accommodate you this semester, but still let us know that you are interested by completing the form and including your schedule.
