The Religious Studies Center at Brigham Young University and the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Arizona are organizing the Third International Conference on the Chinese Buddhist Canon, which is scheduled for April 9-10, 2015 in Provo, Utah. Previous conferences were held in 2011 in Tucson and 2013 in Los Angeles. The third conference will focus on the Buddhist Canon in modern East Asia. In addition to a group of invited scholars, the organizers would like to solicit submissions of research papers on the transformation of the canonical tradition in China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam during the modern period.
If you have a research project or idea that would relate well to the conference theme, please send a brief research description or paper abstract (about 300 words) to Greg Wilkinson (gregory_wilkinsonATbyu.edu) and Jiang Wu (jiangwuATemail.arizona.edu) no later than Dec. 31, 2014. If selected, you will be invited to present your papers with full coverage of travel expense and lodging. Papers must be written or translated in English. Young scholars and advanced graduate students are encouraged to participate as well.
