About Lawrence

Lawrence, KS is a lovely college town located in Northeastern Kansas, not far from Kansas City. It boasts one of the best downtown areas in the region, with many locally owned restaurants and shops, a lively arts scene, and a pleasant atmosphere. The campus of the University of Kansas is located about a mile from downtown, and sits atop Mount Oread, which has lovely views of town and the surrounding countryside.  Conference events will all be held on campus.

While you are in Lawrence, you may wish to make use of KU’s excellent library, which houses an especially good collection of East Asian language books, magazines, and newspapers, as well as English language materials on the region. The library is still building its South Asian collection, which was not a region of emphasis on campus until recent years.
