CONFERENCE: Buddhism and Ritual Performance in Pre-Modern Japan, McGill University, Sept. 28, 2018

Crosspost from PMJS

 

Dear all, 

please find an updated conference schedule below. I would also like to thank BDK Canada and CREOR McGill for their financial support. This is our second conference in two years, and it is my hope that I can develop this into an annual conference solely devoted to the study of pre-modern Japanese religion and history.

Best wishes,

Mikael Bauer

Call for articles: materiality of religion in Japan

Ritual paraphernalia and sacred objects have always been inherently part of religious life, and probably with greater significance for lived religion than religious doctrines. This is also the case within Japanese religion in both historical and contemporary perspective. For a special issue on materiality, we are welcoming articles from Japanese and non-Japanese (preferably younger) scholars to address some of the following questions in relation to all Japanese religious traditions and configurations:

CFP Daoist Studies Unit, American Academy of Religion Annual Meeting, Denver CO, November 17-20 2018

The Daoist Studies Unit (DSU) of the American Academy of Religion (AAR) administers the essential venue for sharing research on Daoist materials anywhere in the Western world. The three main goals of the DSU are: to reach into the vast recesses of the largely unstudied Daoist tradition; to reach out in conversation with other religious traditions represented at the AAR; and to continually promote Annual Meeting of the AAR as an international venue for advancing research by all levels of Daoism scholars.
