I have just been to Yale to give a paper at the international conference on Liao ("Koryo and Liao Relations in the 10th-11th century -Impact on Buddhist Culture-"). Two universities (Chicago and Yale) would like to publish my paper. I may give this talk to CKS and A&A in the new semester, if they would like to arrange it.
