International Society for Epic Studies

November 26, 2012
At the International Summit on Epic Studies recently convened in Beijing by the Institute of Ethnic Literature (a division of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences), I had the honor of being elected to the Advisory Board of the newly-formed International Society for Epic Studies. I congratulate Chao Gejin, host of the Summit and the Society's first president, and thank him for his efforts on behalf of the study of world epics.
