Hi Everyone,

Materials for the 2011 Religion and the Literary in Tibet seminar are now available. As a reminder, the theme for year 2 is:  Poetry 11th to 13th centuries.

Lara Braitstein (McGill University) and Jonathan Gold (Princeton University) are contributing materials this year. Lara will be discussing her work on mahāmudrā poetics in Saraha’s vajragīti; Jonathan will present the translation of kāvya and rasa theory in Tibet through the writing of Sa skya Paṇḍita.

You can read a description of their topics and download their texts and translations under the AAR year 2 tab above, or by clicking here.

Saturday 11/19 – 9:00 am-11:30 am
Room: MM-Yerba Buena 8

We look forward to seeing you soon in San Francisco!

Update:  yes, it’s still only 2011.

Greetings seminar members.

Welcome to the new digs for our Tibetan Literature seminar. We hope to slowly add features that will allow us to work more collaboratively and serve as a shared repository for materials generated by the seminar.

For the time being, we have added some information about the upcoming meeting in Charlottesville.

Pages describing the schedule and the selection of readings chosen for the workshop can be found under the UVA Meeting tab above.
