CFP> Workshop: Religious and Cultural Inclusion and Exclusion in Myanmar History

Call for Papers

The Independent Journal of Burmese Scholarship announces a Workshop/Conference on the Theme:

Religious and Cultural Inclusion and Exclusion in Myanmar History

In view of the traumatic political events of the past year, we anticipate that a substantial number of papers will examine Islam and the Rohingya issue. We emphasize, however, that we welcome papers that examine other ethnic and religious groups that fall within this theme.

 

ANNOUNCEMENT> "Primer in Chinese Buddhist Writings"

Dear Colleagues,

The recent announcement of an introductory reader for Buddhist Chinese reminds me that John Kieschnick's (free) "Primer in Chinese Buddhist Writings" seems not as widely known as it deserves to be. The volumes (currently six) can be downloaded here:
https://religiousstudies.stanford.edu/people/john-kieschnick/primer-chinese-buddhist-writings

I have used the Primer several times in introductory reading classes and found it very helpful.
