My time in China is winding down - six more weeks or so? (I've still not bought my ticket home, procrastinating!) But I have three more gigs, at least. Most exciting: On June 11th I'll be lecturing in Yang Huilin's class at Renmin in Beijing (this is a picture someone sent me of his announcing it to his students). Grandest sounding is this one, in not quite a fortnight. The title wasn't my doing; I was told I could talk about whatever I wanted! (I think I'll build on what I talked about at HKU in December.) But the most fun talk, probably, will be this coming Monday, in a Fudan class on Eliade's Sacred and Profane. The students need to hear criticisms of Eliade, the instructor my friend R said, could you talk about that? Can I ever!
