NEW JOURNAL ISSUE> "Buddhism and Blasphemy"

Dear colleagues:
 
I have pleased to report the publication of a special issue in the Journal of Religion and Violence: "Buddhism, Blasphemy, and Violence."
 
While there has been previous work on Buddhism and blasphemy, this is the first time such an issue has been collectively addressed and framed in the contemporary period.

In Memoriam: F.K. Lehman (F. K. L. U Chit Hlaing), 1924-2016

Professor F.K. Lehman (F. K. L. U Chit Hlaing), renowned anthropologist and Asia scholar, wide-ranging expert on Burma and its peoples, passed away several days ago. He was professor emeritus at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Lehman is being widely remembered and there are surely obituaries to come. A memorial website was set up at the Center for Burma Studies which he helped found, at Northern Illinois University. It can be found via http://go.niu.edu/Lehman, or directly here:
