H-Buddhism serves as a medium for the exchange of information regarding academic resources, new research projects, scholarly publications, university job listings, and so forth, for specialists in Buddhist Studies who are currently affiliated with academic institutions.
At the request of Dr. Vincent Eltschinger, Vice-Director of the Institute for the Cultural and Intellectual History of Asia (Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna), I am passing on the obituary he posted on the Indology list yesterday.
Dear friends and colleagues,
Scott Hurley's student, Matthew Sullivan, has recently added a "Buddhism and Animals" section to the H-Buddhism Zotero bibliography. Thank you Matthew!

Greetings. I would like to request all/any of your opinion in this following question:
When the First Buddhist Council took place Ven. Ananda, first, was not admitted in the Council Hall, for, he was not an arhant, as the arhant-hood was, it seems, the qualification to be admitted at. Now why was the arhant-hood was very important- to know the Dharma by heart as Ven. Ananda seems to have had (and as the Vinaya in Ven. Upali's case), necessary?
I wonder, please, if someone could please provide me with a contact email for each of the following scholars (offlist); or if those scholars who are members of this list could please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
