RASKB Activities in August and September, 2012

Dear members and friends of RASKB,

I hope you are enjoying a restful summer? Here in Seoul the heatwave seems set to continue. The RAS does not organize lectures in August, since many are away from Seoul if not Korea. Please note that our first lecture in September (by Prof. Robert Provine on early recordings of Korean music) will be held on Wednesday September 12, and not on Tuesday Sept. 11 as previously announced. The room is not available on the Tuesday. Prof. Province has just retired as Professor in the School of Music at the University of Maryland. Traditional Korean music is one of his major areas of interest.

Our other September lecture will be:

The Decision, or War in Korea: Revelations from the Russian Archives
Lecturer: Kathryn Weathersby.
Date: Tuesday, September 25, 2012, 7:30pm
Dr. Weathersby was the first Western historian to examine Soviet documents on Korea, and she will describe what Russian archives reveal about when and why Kim Il Sung, Joseph Stalin, and Mao Zedong decided to use military force to bring all of Korea under communist control.

The few summer tours that we organize are mostly designed to take you to cooler places with the whole family. See below for the detailed program.

For fuller details, please consult our home page.
I look forward to seeing you all in September.
With all my best wishes,

Brother Anthony
President, RASKB
