The lectures were fascinating and very enjoyable. Dr. Sabahat Adil is extremely knowledgeable and able to answer any query. She provided not only an excellent grounding in the history of the Silk Road, but in the current situation as well. A wonderful course!
Dr. Sabahat Adil was an excellent presenter, deeply knowledgable, engaging, organized and passionate about her subject. She clearly enjoyed sharing her expertise with us and graciously endeavored to answer all questions posed to her. Her visual aids were excellent and enriched her presentation.
A fascinating look into the legendary route(s) from Europe/the Med to Asia. With excellent visuals to enhance her talk, Dr. Adil led us on a multicultural, educational and fun journey seeing that exchanges went far beyond just silk.
A nicely presented history of the Silk Road enhanced by selective ,and effective, use of media to illustrate cross cultural effects in trade, music, religion, architecture, and animal husbandry. These ‘braided’ routes were originally defined by the vast geography of Central Asia as well as the cultures the Road touched. The Silk Road faded as nautical routes provided more predictable trade. The talks revealed the great depth and breadth of Dr Anil’s knowledge.
This was an excellent presentation of the history as well as other cultural cross-currents fostered by the Silk Road. Dr. Adil was a knowledgeable, articulate and thoughtful presenter.
