The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Lecture Series in Chinese Buddhism
The lecture series, supported by a grant from The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation, will be dedicated to Chinese Buddhism and hosted by the SOAS Centre of Buddhist Studies.
The series engages with research from a variety of disciplines, from History and Philosophy to Anthropology and Art History. It aims at contributing to a broader and deeper understanding of Chinese Buddhist traditions, from a non-sectarian perspective.
This interdisciplinary series is designed to allow a wide audience to approach Chinese Buddhism in its richness and complexity. At the same time, it aspires at providing a platform for advanced postgraduate training. To that end, each event will consist of two parts: a formal lecture intended for the general public and a seminar opened to postgraduate students and researchers. The lectures will launch in October 2017 and feature three events per year.
