Our seminar will be held at the Mansfield Freeman Center for East Asian Studies on the campus of Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.
Middletown is a charming New England city with a thriving restaurant scene, a multiplex movie theater on Main Street, and ready access to all manner of outdoor activities. It is within half an hour of New Haven and Hartford, and two hours of New York and Boston, so a wide variety of day- or weekend-trips are possible.
The Freeman East Asian Center merges a Victorian home, a brand-new addition, and a Japanese-style garden. The seminar will meet areound a large table in the room shown to the right; the image below shows the view out to the garden.
The Center also has computers and limited office space available for use during the day.
Participants in the seminar will also have full use of Wesleyan’s library and information technology resources, including numerous on-line indexes, full-text databases, and other research aids that are specific to philosophy and to Asian studies, respectively.
