Dear MCLC list members,
In late 2019, Wilt Idema’s 75th birthday was celebrated at the Leiden University Libraries. Here’s the announcement of the event, including a portrait of the scholar as a young man.
For the occasion, Wilt was asked to give a lecture on developments in Chinese Studies since his student days in the early 1960s. Video of the event is now available online. Wilt’s talk starts at 00:24:40.
