And will continue to be for a few more days. I have been swamped grading papers and putting the finishing touches on three papers I am presenting in the next few weeks. If any gluttons for punishment want to read draft (not for citation) copies of papers on:
--How changing perceptions of China helped convince Korean elites like Yun Ch'i-ho that kungmun (now known in South Korea was han’gûl) wasn't so bad after all.
--Chosôn Korea’s attempts to leave Qing Chinese suzerainty behind and enter the “family of nations” (only to find that the deck was stacked against it: the “modern” system of international relations wasn’t all that different than the “traditional” one).
--How and why Chinese merchants were rather successful in late 19th century Korea

let me know and I'll send you a copy.
