Dear all,

Due to the outpouring of interest in digital sources, I've decided to offer a longer Zoom session next week on the Maoist Legacy database. Following an introduction of about 45 minutes, in which I'll walk through navigating and using the site (and a few of the technical details for those interested), I'd like to open the floor to Q&A. A few other members of the Maoist Legacy project team will be on hand to answer questions as well. Registration for the session, using the link below, is mandatory.
