An international conference on the study of Buddhism, Daoism (Taoism), and Chinese religion. Over twenty scholars from Asia, Europe, and the U.S. will gather at Princeton University to reflect on Chinese religion, using the interactions between two of China’s oldest forms of organized religion, Buddhism and Daoism, as a starting point. Sessions, all held in Jones Hall Room 202, begin on Friday, October 8, at 4:30 pm, continue through October 9, and conclude on the morning of October 10.
The conference is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required (please contact Barbara Bermel
). Rather than being read aloud at the conference, papers will be pre-distributed and then discussed at the conference. Languages of the conference are English and Chinese.
The conference, organized by Stephen F. Teiser (Princeton University) and Franciscus Verellen (École française d’Extrême-Orient), is sponsored by Princeton’s Program in East Asian Studies (The Mercer Trust), Council in the Humanities (David P. Gardner Magic Project), Center for the Study of Religion, Buddhist Studies Workshop, and the École française d’Extrême-Orient.
