CORRECTION: Conf.: Portugal and the World: On the 40th Anniversary of the Carnation Revolution, MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin, April 23, 2014

This conference is being held at the University of Wisconsin, MILWAUKEE, not Madison, as I mistakenly wrote in the original message.

My apologies to the organizers.  The information at the link clearly says the event is sponsored by the Portuguese Program of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.
