Closer to home, Miki and I examined paintings in Washington, DC’s Arthur M.Sackler Gallery and the Turfan slides from the Führerprojekt in the National Gallery of Art this spring.The Georgetown-IDP Project for North American Collections developed from conversations between Susan Whitfield, Miki Morita and myself that began in spring 2015, following Susan’s trip to Georgetown University to deliver a well-received talk on IDP and the landscape of international collaboration in the Critical Silk Road Studies Seminar, a year-long series of events supported by the Mellon Foundation that I co-organized at Georgetown in 2014-2015.At that time, it quickly became obvious that the combination of Miki’s prior experience in similar projects and the resources and academic community for Silk Road studies at Georgetown and in the Washington, DC area were an ideal fit for convening this project, representing a major step forward for the large-scale incorporation of Silk Road artefacts in North American collections into the IDP database for the first time.The Dunhuang Foundation US also supported Miki’s most recent research trip to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Yale University Art Gallery and Manuscripts and Archives of the Yale University Library.The first year of the project came to a successful close with her lecture 'Highlights of the Georgetown-IDP Project 2016-17' to a packed audience at the Sackler Gallery on May 31. Miki Morita started work as the Georgetown-IDP Postdoctoral Research Fellow for North American Collections with the remit of researching artefacts from the eastern Silk Road held in public and private collections in North America for inclusion on IDP.In this double issue of IDP News, we show some of the results of her research and success in starting to make many more artefacts from North American collections available through IDP.
