We are happy to announce that, as part of the AAS Theravada Studies Group Meeting, we are hosting two short presentations showcasing new research by recent PhDs and graduate students who are working on their dissertation or first manuscript. Following these presentations, we will have respondents and a larger group discussion, focusing on these research projects.

Re: CALL FOR PAPERS> Emerging Voices in the Study of Theravada Civilizations

Dear All,

Please note that the call for papers is legible when you link to it on H-Net, using the link in the original post, which I give again here:

I am not sure why the post's lines are crushed in email display, or even whether they are so on other members' computers, but they certainly made it illegible on my computer. My apologies.
