Paul Copp is Associate Professor in Chinese Religion and Thought in the department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. He primarily studies the history of religious practice in China and eastern Central Asia during the period stretching from the eighth through the thirteenth centuries. He works with visual and material sources, especially of the manuscripts and xylographs discovered at the “silk road” sites of Dunhuang, Turfan, and Khara-khoto, but also of cave- and cliff-shrines and tombs from across the region.
