Kitan-Language Crash Course, to be held at Yale University in May 11-19, 2016

The Council of East Asian Studies, Yale University, will host a nine-day workshop on the Kitan language to be held in New Haven, May 11-19, 2016. Depending on the number of those attending, the Council will provide some financial support to cover travel to the conference or room and board in New Haven. Preference will be given first to advanced PhD students planning to write about the Liao in their dissertations, then to recent PhDs whose dissertations concerned the Liao or who have already published on the Liao dynasty, and finally to more senior scholars.
