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 to 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.

Video recordings of previous lectures in the series can be found on our YouTube playlist.
