Dear colleagues,  

The BuddhistRoad team is happy to announce that the BuddhistRoad Guest Lecture will continue this year. After Cuilan Liu gave the first guest lecture in January, the lecture series of Neil Schmid, titled "Chinese Dunhuang Studies in the 21st Century" starts this month. This BuddhistRoad Lecture Series aims to provide insight into modern Chinese Dunhuang studies. In a series of 6 lectures, Neil Schmid will provide an overview of the major areas of Dunhuang research as well as key scholars, publications, research projects, institutions, and research directions.
