Dear List:

On April 13 (Wed.), there will be the first McGill Korean Studies
Conference.  Organized by our Centre for East Asian Research, we hope to
make this an annual event here at McGill, as well as to be able to invite
more outside speakers in the future.  Of course, anyone who might be in
Montreal area next week is more than welcome to drop by.
