Tibetan research is conference focus

February 28, 2008

Princeton University, NJ

Friday through Sunday, March 7-9, 2008, various times · 101 McCormick Hall

An interdisciplinary conference, "Art History, Buddhist Studies,
Tibet: New Perspectives From the Tibet Site Seminar," will be held
Friday through Sunday, March 7-9, in 101 McCormick Hall.

The conference will open at 4:30 p.m. March 7 with a keynote address,
"A Translational Methodology: Toward a Study of Tibetan Art History,"
by art historian Deborah Klimburg-Salter of the University of Vienna.
The weekend sessions will focus on research stemming from a one-month
seminar for doctoral students conducted in 2007 by Stephen F. Teiser,
Princeton's D.T. Suzuki Professor in Buddhist Studies. The seminar in
Tibet, which was long inaccessible to scholars, offered unprecedented
opportunities for researchers to explore its treasures and expand the
study of Buddhism and Tibetan culture.

The conference is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Religion
and the Tang Center for East Asian Art. It also is supported by the
Henry Luce Foundation, which sponsored the Tibet site seminar.
