Below are the sessions in which members of the Lee-Campbell research group are involved in some way or another. We have two presentations of papers co-authored with graduate students, I will be serving as a discussant for another session, and then there will be an author-meets-critics session for Similarity in Difference: Marriage in Europe and Asia, 1700-1900, the Eurasia Project comparative study of marriage lead-authored by Christer Lundh and Satomi Kurosu.
