We invite proposals for papers for the UK Association for Buddhist Studies Annual Conference, which will take place at the University of Bristol, 21–22 June 2018. The theme of the conference will be ‘Buddhism and Material Culture’. We welcome proposals for papers addressing any aspect of this topic relating to Buddhism ancient or modern, in Asia or the West.

Presenters will be allocated forty minutes for their paper and fifteen minutes for discussion, and will normally be expected to pay their own conference registration and expenses. The conference fee, including food but excluding accommodation, is expected to be £75 for UKABS members (£65 for student, retired, monastic and unwaged members) and £100 for non-members. Final registration details will be announced in February 2018.

We also welcome proposals from doctoral research students, who will be allocated twenty minutes for their paper and ten minutes for discussion, and given free registration.

Some financial assistance may be available to those whose participation depends upon it; please indicate if this is the case when submitting your abstract.
