The first newly revised edition of the Canadian Journal of Buddhist Studies is now available online. In this issue, we are glad to feature:
- Professor Donald S. Lopez, Jr.’s report on the “Buddhist Studies Today” symposium convened at the University of British Columbia in 2015
- Book reviews of “An American Buddhist Life: Memoirs of a Modern Dharma Pioneer” and “Lotus Petals in the Snow Voices of Canadian Buddhist Women“
- A collection of reports and reflections of public lectures and reading groups hosted at Canadian institutions from December 2015 to May 2016
Canadian Journal of Buddhist Studies is published annually. Articles are accepted for blind peer review at any time of year.
We welcome articles on classical textual and intertextual analysis, including work on hagiography, Buddhist art, ritual, doctrinal questions and lineage formation, and work on contemporary Buddhist communities concerning, for example, the implications of fluid demographic transformations, cultural hybridity, and challenges associated with communal continuity of praxis and doctrine in a context of global mobilities.
Scholars working in, but not limited to, anthropology, sociology, psychology, philosophy, history and religious studies are welcome to submit. Articles may focus on any region or historical period. Scholars do not have to be affiliated with a Canadian university.
While the Canadian context is a key concern we understand that the fluid global nature of Buddhist communities necessitates inclusion of scholarship on Buddhists in countries other than Canada.
Please contact Ngoc Le, Journal Manager, if you have any question on submission firstname.lastname@example.org
