Su-yeon Seo, (Cornell grad student, Asian Studies) will lead final Classical Chinese text-reading for this semester titled Naming and Knowledge in the East Asian Sea.

The group meets monthly during the semester to explore a variety of classical Chinese texts and styles. Other premodern texts linked to classical Chinese in Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese have been explored. Presentations include works from the earliest times to the 20th century. Workshop sessions are led by local, national, and international scholars.  Participants with any level of classical Chinese experience are welcome to attend.
