Australasian Association of Buddhist Studies (AABS)
Dear list members,

Our program of semester 1 seminars sent yesterday mistakenly omitted details for one talk (listed below as #3). Please find below our updated seminar program. All seminars will be held in the Woolley Rogers Room in the John Woolley Building at the University of Sydney (a campus map may be found here). Before each session we will also send a reminder with an abstract and short biography of the speaker.

We hope you can attend this semester's program.

Kind regards,
AABS Executive
