USF Seminar (1.5 days): Women in Asian Imperial Courts (1600-1900) $10/2 days

P-l-e-a-s-e    do  NOT   respond "No" if you can't attend--it creates too much unnesscessary email on my end. If you RSVP "Yes"--pls indicate where you live in the comment box (for carpooling purposes--street parking is limited). Golden Gate Transit and Muni are also excellent ways to get there.  Thankx!, Morna

Please read the accompanying information on the accompanying USF website. Everything you need to know will be covered there. I won't know more than you do.

I'll arrange a meeting site for all the RSVP members as the time gets closer. We may be able to coordinate car pools, and even a late lunch gathering.

    My first academic presentation....not comprehensive enough for my interests. Worthwhile experience. Not sure I'd repeat it---very formal format.

    I'm glad that I went. It was interesting and informative.
    At first it seemed to me that good topics were being weighed down by academic formality. But after awhile I stopped noticing the formalities and just enjoyed the talks and the discussions.
    If you are interested in the topic but missed it you might like to read The Empress and Mrs Conger or Imperial Masquerade by Grant Hayter-Menzies who was the keynote speaker.

    I just registered. Today is the last day. I wasn't able to register on the USF site when I first found out about this event. This is a link to do it online: https://quikpayasp.com/usfca/commerce_manager/payer.do?orderType=Pac_Rim
