The East Asia Library is pleased to announce that a new exhibit titled “Recent Publications by Yale’s East Asia Faculty, 2012-2013” has just been set up in the East Asian Reading Room. It features new books that have been written, edited, and translated by Yale's faculty members in the fields of East Asian studies in the recent two years. This exhibit is intended to showcase our fabulous East Asia faculty and their research.
In association with the exhibit, the East Asia Library is going to organize a series of informal talks on new monographs written by Yale's East Asia faculty. Two talks have been scheduled in October as follows:
1. Professor Valerie Hansen (History Department), "The Silk Road: A New History, One Year Later" (October 4, 1-2 PM, Room 218, Sterling Memorial Library)
2. Professor Fabian Drixler (History Department), "Infanticide and a Demographic Revolution in Japan: a book talk on Mabiki: Infanticide and Population Growth in Eastern Japan, 1660-1950." (October 11, 2-3 PM, Room 218, Sterling Memorial Library)
Refreshments will be provided for both talks.
We hope you will enjoy the new exhibit in the East Asian Reading Room, and look forward to seeing many of you at the upcoming book talks.
