by Berthe JansenTibetan Buddhists and the Law, 16-17 June 2017, Leiden University
Date: June 16, 2017 to June 17, 2017
Location: The Netherlands, Leiden University
Subject Fields: Buddhist Studies, Tibetan Studies, Law and Legal History, Legal Anthropology
As part of the NWO-funded project ‘The interaction between religion and the law in Tibet’ we are pleased to announce a two-day symposium on Tibetan Buddhists and the law at Leiden University. This symposium will bring together scholars and experts who work on the way in which Tibetan Buddhists (which means to include various Himalayan peoples, Tibetans, and Mongolians, but also ‘converts’) interact with legal issues. The contemporary situation and the historical context will be given equal attention. We are seeking 25-minute papers from researchers working on the interaction between Buddhism, the law, and Tibetan societies.
Topics and approaches might include:
- The existence or extent of a ‘Tibetan Buddhist legal system’
- The relationship between Buddhist believers and a non-Buddhist legislative body
- The role of Buddhists as (legal) mediators
- The possible socio-legal influence of Buddhism on local government
- Religious vis á vis legal conflicts with regard to the ‘Tibet issue’
Applicants are invited to submit by 25 February 2017 a proposal of c. 300 words, together with a short biography for inclusion in the programme.
Please contact and/or send proposals to:
Dr Berthe Jansen at firstname.lastname@example.org

Canadian Journal of Buddhist Studies 12 Call for Papers
The Canadian Journal of Buddhist Studies, published by the David See Chai Lam Centre for International Communication, is a scholarly peer-reviewed, open access, online journal covering all aspects of Buddhist studies. The editorial board recognizes the inherently interdisciplinary and international nature of contemporary Buddhist studies and is open to submissions from scholars working in, but not limited to, anthropology, sociology, psychology, philosophy, history and religious studies. Articles may focus on any region or historical period. Scholars do not have to be affiliated with a Canadian university to submit.
The Canadian Journal of Buddhist Studies welcomes articles on classical textual and intertextual analysis, including work on hagiography, Buddhist art, ritual, doctrinal questions and lineage formation, and work on contemporary Buddhist communities concerning, for example, the implications of fluid demographic transformations, cultural hybridity, and challenges associated with communal continuity of praxis and doctrine in a context of global mobilities.
The Canadian context is a key concern of Canadian Journal of Buddhist Studies. However, global realities of migration, rapidly changing mass media and telecommunications, and the associated ascendancy of mobilities perspectives in the social sciences necessitate inclusion of articles on Buddhists in countries other than Canada.
CJBS is published annually and welcomes submissions at any time. Article review and copy-editing can take up to six months before publication.
The submissions deadline for the twelfth edition (2017) is March 1, 2017.
The Canadian Journal of Buddhist Studies accepts article submissions all year. Authors should send articles directly to Journal Manager, Ngoc LE at cjbs(at)sfu.ca. Please consult submission guidelines before submitting an article.
The Canadian Journal of Buddhist Studies does not accept unsolicited book reviews but scholars interested in writing a review are welcome to submit a curriculum vitae and to contact our Book Review Editor, Dr. Jacqueline Ho at email@example.com with expressions of interest in reviewing specific publications.
Canadian Buddhist Studies News Blog:
The journal is accompanied by a news blog, a platform for graduate students in the field to catch up with current academic conversations, discuss their researches and share experiences. It can become an effective conduit of communication concerning new courses, conferences and much more. If you are interested in becoming regular contributors to Canadian Buddhist Studies News or know any graduate students who wishes to contribute, please contact Ngoc LE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your interests in the journal and we hope to hear from you.
