Reflections on the AAS Conference in Toronto, March 2017

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to share my reflections on the AAS Toronto Conference, which I recently posted on my newly renovated website (see the link below). I hope that the organizers also might find the feedback useful in some way. It was a fantastic experience re-connecting with the AAS conference and with fellow Asian Studies colleagues who I hadn't seen in so many years.
