About the speaker:
Dr Ron Choong is an independent interdisciplinary scholar. Born in Kuala Lumpur, educated in the UK and the USA, he is now living in New York. Although his academic training is in biology and chemistry, law, international relations, history, philosophy and theology, he is more interested in the web of knowledge across all disciplines of inquiry.
In this session, he will share thoughts on the studies of the migration of religious ideas along three Old Silk Roads from China to Europe via Central Asia, India and the Arabian Peninsula.
