NEW BOOK> Conventional and Ultimate Truth: A Key for Fundamental Theology, by Joseph O'Leary

In Conventional and Ultimate Truth, Joseph Stephen O’Leary completes his trilogy on contemporary fundamental theology, which began with the volumes Questioning Back (1985) and Religious Pluralism and Christian Truth (1996). Common to all three works are dialogues with European philosophers Martin Heidegger, Jacques Derrida, G. W. F. Hegel, and the Madhyamaka school of Buddhism.

ADMIN> Retiring Mailman (the editors)

Dear H-Buddhism Colleagues,

Most of you will recall that when we made the transition--along with the rest of H-Net-- from the Listserv platform to Drupal, we were deeply concerned about the possibility of severe damage being done to our network, which has been thriving for almost two decades. The Drupal platform, in addition to being something radically new and different from what most of us were used to working with, was unintuitive in format, buggy, in short, difficult to use.

CFP> IATS-XIV Tibetan Information Technology, Library Resources, and Digital Humanities panel

Dear Colleagues,

Apologies for any duplicate postings.  Please find below a Call-For-Papers (CFP) for the "Tibetan Information Technology" panel for the 14th IATS conference in Bergen, Norway next summer (19 to 25 June 2016).

Given the current number of "digital library" projects in the field of Tibetan studies and the overwhelming success of our previous IATS panel in 2013 in Ulaanbaatar, we have decided to make Libraries/Archives and Digital Humanities a permanent component of the panel.
