Weekly meeting for the purpose of sharing our experiences with historical Manchu documents and their language and grammar. We also want to share our understanding of certain historical and cultural topics concerning anything "Manchu". We will meet twice a week. One time in a more informal setting where we will have some tea and snacks and exchange thoughts more casually and maybe prepare certain topics. The second meeting will be dedicated to the teaching of the Manchu language to make scholars capable of using as a tool for archival research. The days and times of the meetings have yet to be determined.
