Other Notes
All talks, except for Dr. Behnke's, start at 3:00 PM in the Alumni Lounge immediately preceding the TGIF. This is an intentional effort to encourage a synergy between our scholarly and social lives.

Most of these dates do not conflict with the Asian Studies Lecture/Workshop Series in an effort to reduce scheduling conflicts.
