Chinese Buddhism and Dunhuang Manuscripts: Workshop with Emerging Scholars and Chunwen Hao

Apr 1, 2022, 1:30 pm5:00 pm
Event Description

The discovery in the year 1900 of more than 60,000 manuscripts holed up in a cave-shrine in northwestern China (Dunhuang, in Gansu Province) revolutionized the study of Chinese Buddhism and related fields. Now, more than 120 years later, recent advances include digital techniques, dissemination of photographs, and the internationalization of Dunhuang Studies. The workshop showcases emerging scholars working on Dunhuang manuscripts, in conversation with one of the most eminent scholars in the field, Chunwen Hao (Capital Normal University).

At present, we plan to hold this event in-person only, on the Princeton University campus. We do not anticipate opening any options for on-line attendance. However, we do aim to post summaries of the papers and discussion on our website shortly after the event.
