EXTENSION> Submission Deadline for the Buddhist Studies Graduate Student Conference at FSU

by Greige Lott

Greetings Collegues,
      
    We would like to announce that we will be extending the deadline for submissions for the upcoming Buddhist Studies Graduate Student Conference at FSU from August 15, 2017 to September 3, 2017 at 11:59pm EST. Additionally, full paper submissions will now be extended to October 12, 2017 at 11:59pm EST
The Florida State University Department of Religion, in conjunction with the Journal of Chinese Buddhist Studies, and the Fifth Annual Sheng Yen Buddhist Studies Lecture Series are pleased to announce the 2017 Buddhist Studies Graduate Student Conference.
Buddhism and Identity: Discourse, Marginality, and Misrepresentation
November 3-5, 2017—Tallahassee Florida
Dr. Meir Shahar of Tel Aviv University will deliver the keynote address as a part of the Sheng Yen Buddhist Studies Lecture Series. The conference will conclude with a second keynote address and a Buddhist Studies roundtable discussion consisting of guest respondents and FSU Buddhist Studies faculty, whose expertise cover Chinese, Tibetan, and Japanese Buddhism.
This conference aims to feature Buddhist Studies as an interdisciplinary field, and actively seeks papers that present a multiplicity of approaches and perspectives that cross departmental lines. Focusing on the theme of “Buddhism and Identity, we welcome presentations about how Buddhism is represented not only as a religion, but how, as an idea, it is conceived of and understood as a social, cultural entity. Specifically, applicants are encouraged to consider how the study of Buddhism manifests from and exists within the margins in multiple contexts—historical, philosophical, psychological, and sociological—and how marginal groups or individuals construct themselves, or are constructed by the religious majority and scholars, through certain discourses from both pre-modern and modern perspectives.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to: Marginal/Minority Experiences of Buddhism; Buddhism in the Creation and Maintenance of Personal or Group Identity; Buddhism within, or as a Power Structure of Identity Creation; Buddhist Identity and Popular Culture; Academia and Buddhism; The Body as a site of Buddhist Identity; Negotiation No-Self and Personal Identity.
Owing to the generosity of the Journal of Chinese Buddhist Studies, outstanding papers will have the opportunity to appear in a special issue highlighting the work of graduate students in Buddhist Studies. Additionally, an award for best paper will be presented after Dr. Shahar’s keynote address.
In keeping with the conference’s goal of bringing together as diverse a group as possible, an attempt will be made to award partial travel stipends for all presenters. In addition, all meals will be covered for this conference.

Please send proposals in the form of an abstract of approximately 300 words, a list of key terms, and a one-page CV to Corbin Nall and Greige Lott (cgn15b@my.fsu.edugal16f@my.fsu.edu) by September 3, 2017. Final papers must be submitted by October 12, 2017.
Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to your proposed topics.
Corbin Nall and Greige Lott.

  1. RESOURCE> Siddham online database of South Asian inscriptions

RESOURCE> Siddham online database of South Asian inscriptions

by Lewis Doney
Dear colleagues,

A new online database of South Asian inscriptions, "Siddham" (http://siddham.uk/), was launched by "Beyond Boundaries: Religion, Region, Language and the State" project. Our team expects the database will continue to expand its corpus, include translations, and incorporate new languages starting with Burmese Pyu and Old Tibetan. We welcome any feedback on the usability of the platform or other suggestions through our online feedback form (http://siddham.uk/contact). 

Please know that the structural metadata, the XML-tagged transliterations (following EpiDoc TEI standards), and the supporting photographic data are being archived within the Siddham community of Zenodo (https://zenodo.org/communities/siddham/?page=1&size=20). This will enable open access as well as protect the database in case of any unforeseen eventuality.

The "Siddham" database is a resource for the study of inscriptions from South and Central Asia. It is the key output of "Beyond Boundaries," a major multidisciplinary research project which aims to re-vision the history of Asia in one of its most significant periods. The project focuses on the period of the Guptas (circa 320 to 550), which had an enduring impact on India and across Central and Southeast Asia in a host of cultural, religious and socio-political spheres. 

The project is based at the British Museum, British Library and the School of Oriental and African Studies, and funded by an ERC-Synergy grant for 2014–2020.

With best wishes,
Lewis Doney
Research Assistant,

Film and Psychoanalysis Series:

Moonlight

This coming-of-age story portrays the excruciating struggle of an emotionally abused boy named Chiron growing up with his crack-addicted mother, and without a father, in the projects outside Miami in the 1980’s. What saves Chiron may be his childhood connection to the local drug dealer, Juan, who is internalized as a paternal figure and a loving attachment.

Dr. Hollis's New Book!

Due February 1st


Jung Center Director Emeritus, Dr. James Hollis, has written a new book!  Living an Examined Life isn't due to hit shelves 
until February of next year, but if you can'
t wait to reserve your copy until then, we
 can help you out.  See below the book's description for information on how to 
contact Elissa Davis, and pre-order your
 copy today!
How do you define “growing up”?  Does it mean you achieve certain cultural 
 benchmarks—a steady income, paying
 taxes, marriage, and children?  Or does
 it mean leaving behind the expectations
 of others and growing into the person
 you were meant to be?  If you find 
 yourself in a career, place, relationship,
 or crisis you never foresaw and that 
seems at odds with your beliefs about
 who you are, it means your soul is 
calling on you to reexamine your path.
With Living an Examined Life, James 
Hollis offers an essential guidebook for anyone at a crossroads in life.  Here, this acclaimed author guides you through 21 
for self-inquiry and growth—such as 
how to exorcise the ghosts of 
your past, when 
to choose meaning over happiness,
 how 
to construct a mature spirituality, and
 how to seize permission to be who 
you really are.  With his trademark
 eloquence and insight, Dr. Hollis
 offers a potent resource you’ll return 
to time and again to energize and inspire
 you on your journey to create a life of personal authority, integrity, and
 fulfillment.

Living an Examined Life is available 
for pre-order through The Jung Center Bookstore.  Please contact Elissa Davis (information below) to order your
 copy today!

Healing Circles at
The Jung Center

As the volume increases in our local and national conversation, comprehension
 and true dialogue seem in danger of vanishing entirely.  Now more than ever
 we need to practice the necessary – and difficult – art of listening.  Layers of thought, emotion, memory and image are always present in our encounters with others.  
will explore how to attend to these layers 
and how to make possible more direct and meaningful connections.  The intention is to enhance our capacity to listen deeply. 
 We will have several topics and questions
 to choose from and will use a Healing 
Circle (Peer Spirit) process which will be explained at the beginning of each
 session.

Healing Circles are held from 6 - 7:30pm, on every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month, at The Jung Center.

in attending.
