Please arrive on time as a courtesy to others. Participants are invited to bring refreshments to share. This event is free and open to the public. Parking is available under the FedEx Global Education Center.

This event is co-sponsored by the Carolina Asia Center and the South Asia Section of the Department of Asian Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
