Research Title: Revisiting the Technology of the Byzantine Silk Industry
Dr. Wu studied History at Xiamen University (BA, 2009) and World History at Nankai University (MA, 2013) and recently took his doctorate in Byzantine Studies at King’s College London. His primary research interests include women and the silk industry in Byzantium. His doctoral thesis examines women in Central Greece between 1000 and 1200 from the respects of economic engagements, devotional life, and family roles. He is keen on exploring new ways to shed light upon the seemingly invisible sides of Byzantine history. At ANAMED, he is working on the technical parameters of the Byzantine silk industry. He pays special attention to textual, archaeological, and pictorial materials that are informative but so far remain underexplored in relevant scholarship.
