Dear all,

Please see the following announcement/CFP for this fall's graduate student Asian
studies conference at the University of Texas at Austin.  It is run by the South
Asia Institute, but papers relating to East (including, or should I say
especially, Korea) and Southeast Asia are encouraged.  Abstract deadline May 1
-- my apologies that this is rapidly approaching.

>In addition to an exciting range of panel presentations and a lecture from two
>keynote speakers, a more casual program of receptions will provide ample time
