Previous Meetings: Report of 28th Meeting Venice 1985 now available

Dear Reader,

Not all information relevant to the PIAC appears in the same place. Historically, there was never something like a central repository of all things PIAC. In the case of the 28th Meeting which had been held in Venice in 1985, the editor’s attention had only recently been guided to the Report of the 28th Meeting, written by Ádám Molnár and published by the Acta Orientalia of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1988.

The PIAC Newsletter No. 16, August 1986, in contrast, has a short summary.
