Univ. of British Columbia's Department of Asian Studies will host the 2006 Early Modern Komonjo/Kuzushiji Workshop July 16-August 12. The workshop will use UBC's Bean's Collection of Edo-period maps as its centrepiece (http://www.library.ubc.ca/spcoll/beans.html), and please note that the Tabi no Bunka Kenkyujo will conduct their own symposium-in-conjunction with this Workshop at UBC the weekend of August 4-5. Applications will be especially welcomed from graduate students, academics and other educators, museum and library professionals. The workshop is co-sponsored with Stanford University, and is co-directed by Profs. Joshua Mostow and Christina Laffin, with Prof. Umezawa Fumiko of Keisen University as the lead instructor. Attendance is restricted to twenty, and applications are due March 15. Participants are responsible for their transportation to and from Vancouver, and their room and board while here (a block of rooms will be reserved on campus); there is a separate participation fee of CAD$500 (approx. US$400). It is expected that limited scholarship assistance will be available. Further information on the Workshop and how to apply will become available from October; please visit the Department's web site at http://www.asia.ubc.ca/news/events.htm, or contact the Department at 604 822-0019, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
