Seeking Panelists for Muslims in Pre-Modern China Panel Session, AAR's Annual Meeting (Denver, November 17-20, 2018)

I am putting together a panel on Islam in pre-Modern China for next year’s American Academy of Religion (Chinese Religions Unit) annual meeting (Denver, November 17-20) and am looking to add two/three additional presenters.

Re: "Hong Kong publisher kidnapped in Thailand and taken to China"
