Professor of History Thomas Wilson presented a paper, "Sacrifice and Confucian Conceptions of Gods and Spirits," at a conference in Taipei, Taiwan. Fifteen scholars from China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea and the U.S. were invited to present papers at the International Conference on the Global Confucius: Sacrifice and the Confucius Temple, which was sponsored by the Taipei Municipal Government and the Taipei Confucius Temple Association. The conference was covered by the local media. This link to the main story in the China Times describes (in Chinese) the first day of the conference.
