Cultural Heritage



Mr Li’s major research and teaching interests are archaeology and cultural heritage, for which he owes the most to the graduate training in anthropological archaeology at UBC (University of British Columbia), Canada. He worked as Visiting Scholar at the Harvard-Yanching Institute of Harvard University for one year and taught at the Anthropology Department of Sun Yat-Sen University (as Associate Professor for two years) previously.  He has published many academic papers and three books.
