About the Author

Professor Daniel Waugh received his Ph.D. from Harvard and teaches in three departments at the University of Washington (Seattle): History, International Studies, and Slavic and East European Languages and Literature. Much of his research deals with Medieval and Early Modern Russia, although his teaching of late increasingly focuses on Central Asia. In both subject areas, the study of objects is of particular relevance. He is project director for Silk Road Seattle and has a strong interest in the creation of digital resources for learners of all ages. His course on the Silk Road, the cultural and economic exchange across Eurasia for some two millennia, is offered both in the classroom and, for the first time in Spring 2003, as an online course for the nonprofit Silkroad Foundation.
