Spring 2019 courses

I will be working on the tea class next, I believe. Maybe I can finish by Friday. Then 159 last. 159 probably won't be ready until close to the first day of class or on that day.

Various pages for Cal students

More or less permanent pages

These panels lead to pages on the imperial poetry collection Selection of Poems Old and New (Kokin waka shū), The Tale of Genji and Heian culture, and The Tale of Heike. Each of these was developed for lecture series at the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco or for classes at UC-Berkeley but have been modified over time. They are intended for a general audience. The code supporting them is quite old.
