CTR in USA – University of Copenhagen

CTR > About CTR > Travels > CTR in USA


CTR went on a research and lecture tour to the US, on which they visited a wide range of museums and research institutions.

Unlike the previous CTR-tours to India and China, there was no fixed programme. Instead, the CTR scholars arranged to meet with the relevant scholars in their field and to give guest lectures at relevant research institutions. Thus, people joined and left the tour on different occasions.

The purpose of the tour was first of all for the CTR scholars to meet US scholars within their different fields as well as to visit significant research institutions and to see and study important collections and to communicate CTR research to the most important US East Coast universities and Museums. This provided everyone with the opportunity to exchange ideas with other scholars as well as promoting their own research.
