Today's cultural heritage protection integrates multi-disciplinary research in many aspects. There are a large number of case studies at home and abroad in the area of display and interpretation of archaeological sites, and the directions for further development include: interpretation and visual display of basic archaeological materials, regional coordination between heritage display and architectural / planning level, symbiosis of heritage display and ecology / landscape, more compatible and creative content and form design from the perspective of museology / art design, and multi-disciplinary cooperation from the perspective of sociology / tourism.

With the goal of advancing multi-disciplinary cooperation in cultural heritage, in the summer of 2018, Professor Hang Kan from School of Archaeology and Museology, Peking University, and Professor Zhang Chaozhi from School of Tourism Management,Sun Yat sen University, jointly launched a joint workshop on heritage tourism, initiating interdisciplinary dialogue and exploring teaching possibilities. Following that, Peking University successfully held heritage workshops with corresponding themes in Dongge mountain village and Xige mountain village, Pingyao County, Shanxi Province in 2019 and Huangguoshu, Anshun City, Guizhou Province in 2020.

In 2021, we continued to hold a joint workshop on cultural heritage, inviting experts from relevant fields to conduct interdisciplinary discussion, and using Taihe city site in Dali, Yunan, as a field study example on the interpretation and display design of the overall value and relevance of the Nanzhao Dali historical sites. The joint workshop consists of 2 parts: an online course and field school. Regrettably, the field trip was cancelled due to the CORONA Virus, the online course was carried out smoothly.

The workshop adopts an application review system. The total number of applicants exceeded 120, of which 46 people from 37 colleges and universities were admitted into the program. The course is co-organized by the School of Archaeology and Museology, Peking University, WHITRAP, and the Culture and Tourism Administration of Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture. It is funded by the "Graduate Education Innovation Program" of the Graduate School in Peking University. The teaching team consists of professors from Peking University, Southeast University, Sun Yat sen University, Quanzhou Normal University, etc., as well as other experts in the field of site protection and architecture.

The workshop online course lasts for three and a half days from July 25, 2021 to July 28. The course contents include, but are not limited to heritage revitalization, heritage tourism, urban archaeology, architectural archaeology, ecological conservation planning, cultural landscape, architectural design in historical and cultural context, large site protection and archaeological site park, village research from the perspective of anthropology, Cultural heritage conservation planning, village heritage protection, archaeological interpretation, and exhibition content design. From the assignments submitted by the students, it can be seen that students from different disciplines have all gained new knowledge and a deeper understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of heritage disciplines.
