The East Asia Library is pleased to announce the continuation of the “Recent Publications by Yale’s East Asia Faculty” exhibit 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 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 holding a series of informal talks on new monographs written by Yale’s East Asia faculty. This is the first of three talks scheduled for the Spring 2014 semester, and is a book talk on The Yogin & the Madman: Reading the Biographical Corpus of Tibet’s Great Saint Milarepa (2010).

Refreshments will be provided.  

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!
