Dear friends and colleagues,
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.
The Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University is pleased to announce that the Stanley Weinstein Dissertation Prize for academic years 2014-2016 has been awarded to Matthew Mitchell (Duke, 2016) for his impressive Beyond the Convent Walls: The Local and Japan-wide Activities of Daihongan’s Nuns in the Early Modern Period (c. 1550–1868). Mitchell’s dissertation was the unanimous selection of the prize committee out of a very strong pool of nominees.
Dear H-Buddhism Members,
We are very pleased the announce the establishment of the P.Y. and Kinmay
W. Tang Center for Silk Road Studies, under the auspices of the Institute
of East Asian Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. Supported
by a generous gift by the Tang family, the TCSRS is the first center for
Silk Road studies in North America.
By institutionalizing *Silk Road* studies, the TCSRS aims to transcend
longstanding boundaries that have challenged and constricted area studies.
