Sun Hua is a Professor of Archaeology at Peking University and a Visiting Scholar with the UCLA Center for Chinese Studies.
Professor Sun’s research project at UCLA, "The Salt Industry of Ancient Sichuan: Archaeological and Comparative Perspectives," is part of a larger collaborative research project between UCLA (under the direction of Professor Lothar von Falkenhausen) and Peking University. In Professor Sun’s project, artifacts excavated by Professors von Falkenhausen and Sun and their collaborators in Zhong County, in the province of Sichuan -- generally in the famous Three Gorges area of Sichuan -- will be analyzed to uncover their connections to the economic life and environment of this area at the time (stretching back to the Neolithic era). Professor Sun’s visit is made possible by a fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies.
