Dear Colleagues,

We are writing with exciting news: An upcoming topical issue of the “Journal of Dharma Studies” by guest editors Thomas Calobrisi and Devin Zuckerman will convene articles on “Buddhism & the History of Science” (Fall 2020). Wanted are contributions which will generate discussion and reflection on how research in the field of Buddhist studies can be enriched, problematized, and altered by thinking with theories and methods in the history of science.

Accordingly, articles to be considered are those that engage with methodologies in the history of science in the broadest sense, including those that deal with Buddhist knowledge systems and knowledge practices across broad geographical and historical contexts, as well as those that investigate the ways that culturally informed understandings of “science” have shaped western engagements with Buddhism historically and in modernity. The topical issue aims at breaking with the typical patterns of engagement between Buddhism and science by looking critically at the terms in play – “science” and “religion” – and turning attention to the practices of knowledge production, both historically and in the present, in order to better understand forms of Buddhist knowledge and the systems whereby it has been produced.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, June 1st, 2020.

The International Society for Buddhist Philosophy seeks submissions on the theme “Intra-Buddhist Dialogue” for a session at the 2020 Central APA (Chicago, Feb. 26-29).

They encourage individual presentations or panel proposals on topics that involve two or more of the major Buddhist traditions (e.g., Theravāda, Mahāyāna), and/or schools that fall within these (e.g., Ch’an, Madhyamaka, Yogācāra), and/or contemporary Buddhist movements (engaged Buddhism, critical Buddhism, etc.).

Topics might include issues that have been important to intra-Buddhist dialogue historically (e.g., debates over sudden enlightenment, or approaches to Pure Land practices) as well as new comparative philosophical work that is grounded in different Buddhist perspectives.

Submissions are to be sent to Douglas Duckworth (duckworth@temple.edu) and Leah Kalmanson (leah.kalmanson@drake.edu) by Thursday, August 1.
