Aiming to explore an interdisciplinary integration approach to teaching and researching cultural heritage protection, the Peking University 2019 Summer Course “Cultural Heritage Conservation Collaborative Workshop” was organized and sponsored by the Peking University School of Archaeology and Museology in cooperation with Beijing, Shanxi University School of History, the Sun Yat-Sen University Tourism College and the Natural Resources Bureau of Pingyao, with joint funding from the “Graduate Education Innovation Plan” by the Graduate School of Peking University and the Pingyao International Workshop on Urban and Rural Cultural Heritage Protection and Development.
The workshop took place in July 2019 in Jinzhong City, Shanxi Province, with field research conducted in the East and West Geshan villages of Dongquan Town, Pingyao County.
The results of the Collaborative Workshop were showcased at the first Pingyao Cultural Heritage International Exchange Week, held from 2-8 September, through a themed forum and exhibition. Dr. Li Guanghan, Beijing, also presented its main outcome at the International Conference on “Vernacular & Earthen Architecture towards Local Development” organized by ICOMOS International Committees CIAV and ISCEAH (Cf.p.x).
The workshop brought together 46 students from 27 universities from all around the world, and dozens of teachers and experts from well-known universities and institutions from China and abroad.
The workshop activities were carried out in two phases：
Stage in Village
Participants attended lectures, formulated research plans, and conducted investigations and surveys at East and West Geshan villages, focusing on the inheritance and protection of traditional rural cultural heritage in a multidisciplinary perspective encompassing cultural heritage conservation, architecture, history, sociology, tourism studies and other disciplines. The work included diverse aspects: surveys of the historical layout of the villages, investigation of traditional architecture, mapping of representative residential and public buildings and important village nodes; sociological surveys on villagers' social organizations, living customs, and economic profiles; value assessment, and identification of development factors; scenario planning, a feasibility analysis and planning suggestions for the development of the villages’ tourism feasibility study, as well as artistic creations and documentary filming from the perspective of cultural heritage.

Group Discussion and Onsite Investigation
The second phase focused on academic exchanges and on the Exhibition and Forum. The theme of the exhibition was "Guidelines for the Investigation and Protective Development of Pingyao East and West Geshan Villages and Achievements of the Peking University 2019 Summer Course", and was divided into 4 sections: Encountering Pingyao, East-West Regardless, Touching Nostalgia, Documenting Pingyao; presented in the form of exhibition panels, VR panoramas, Chinese paintings, sculptures, documentaries and photographic works.
The theme of the forum, hosted by Zhang Jianwei, Executive Deputy Director of Beijing, was “Interdisciplinary Experimental Research and Interpretation of Rural Cultural Heritage”. Teachers’ and students’ representatives reported on the background, concept, general situation, and research results of the 2019 Collaborative Workshop. Then, Professor Yao Wei from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, architect Xie Yingjun, head of Changmin Building Atelier, and Professor Shao Yong from Tongji University gave keynote speeches. The forum was concluded by the seminar hosted by Professor Hang Kan, where Li Geng, Shao Yong, Wang Qiufan, Xie Yingjun, Yao Wei and Wang Siwei discussed the theme of rural studies. Dozens of East and West Geshan villagers attended the event to express their support for the results achieved.
This workshop was an exploration based on interdisciplinary teaching and research of cultural heritage; it was also a cross-genre artistic creative experiment inspired by rural cultural heritage conservation. The final exhibition presented the whole process aiming, “from analysis to integration", to realize interdisciplinary and inter-artistic experimental research and interpretation of Rural Cultural Heritage.
There is increasing attention to the application of interdisciplinary approach to protect cultural heritage, and this workshop has been a valid pioneering effort. In the future, new editions of the Workshop will continue to explore how to better achieve the multiplier effect of interdisciplinary approach.
