讲座将探讨佛教研究的发展和特征,并重点研究东亚佛教及其在学术界的地位。内容涵盖相关历史轨迹、变动的风尚和范式、制度的约束,以及最近的重要进展。讲座还将讨论学科/领域的范围、多样性和(想象的)边界,以及当代研究人员面临的一些问题。 虽然大多数讨论将围绕美国的背景和困境展开,但也将涉及全球性的研究趋势和观点,包括欧洲和日本的佛教学术研究。


The lecture will explore the development and character of Buddhist studies, with a focus on the study of East Asian Buddhism, and its changing standing within the academia. It will cover relevant historical trajectories, changing fashions and paradigms, institutional strictures, and key recent developments. There will also be a discussion of the scope, diversity, and (imagined) boundaries of the discipline/field, and some of the issues faced by contemporary researchers. While most of the discussion will center around American contexts and predicaments, these will also be related to global trends and perspectives, including the scholarly study of Buddhism in Europe and Japan.
