    Sarah E. Fraser, Universität Heidelberg:
    In deploying a transcultural framework, Mariachiara Gasparini demonstrates the ways in which the material can become more open to multiple meanings and mirror its multifaceted uses with a more flexible, interpretive framework. In her analysis of the material forms of silk in China, the Himalayan Kingdoms including Ladakh, and its constitution in Italy, it may be too soon to say whether Gasparini has single-handedly engineered a field-changing, barrier-breaking analysis of the stuff that brought the “Silk Road” trading routes into existence, but we can state with certainty that she has given researchers tools to fabricate concrete arguments for further study.
