Nov. 2 Neo-Confucianism Seminar

Our thoughts go out to those in the New York area recovering from Hurricane Sandy! Happily, the lights stayed on in Middletown where I live, though 650,000 people are without power in Connecticut and many more in New York, New Jersey, and beyond. 

Update, 10/31: The Nov. 2 Seminar has been cancelled, and will be re-scheduled at a later date.

The next session of the Columbia University Seminar on Neo-Confucian Studies will convene on Friday, November 2 from 3:30 to 5:30pm.  We will meet in the Common Room in the Heyman Center for the Humanities at Columbia University.  Please note the earlier starting time.

Our presenter for this session is Deborah Sommer.  Her paper is titled “The Body of Confucius in Han Apocrypha.”  A copy of her paper can be obtained from any of the Co-Chairs (see below).

All are welcome to attend.   Please feel free to forward this message to interested colleagues.  Please join us after the seminar for dinner at the Columbia Cottage restaurant, which is located on the corner of Amsterdam and 111th Streets.

If you have any questions, you may contact one of our organizers: Yong Huang, Tao Jiang, On-cho Ng, or Deborah Sommer.

These announcements and the mailing list are generated by Deborah Sommer at the Department of Religious Studies at Gettysburg College.  To be added to the list or removed from it, email her at
