Perspectives of Digital Humanities in the Field of Buddhist Studies


Workshop & Symposium (Hybrid)
12 January & 13–14 January 2023

Buddhist Studies have been inspired by the development of Digital Humanities over several decades. While some tools reached maturity about twenty years ago, other tools have been developed very recently and the future offers even more exciting perspectives. This symposium brings together pioneers and newcomers of the world of Buddhist digital humanities in order to give insights into their projects and experiences. While the event is aimed at promoting a professional exchange, it also seeks to build a bridge between the developers and the users of these tools. For this purpose, an accompanying workshop will consist of introductory units on tools and methods like TACL, Social Network Analysis, and BuddhaNexus. The symposium-cum-workshop is a joint event by the Numata Center for Buddhist Studies and the Khyentse Center for Tibetan Buddhist Textual Scholarship at Hamburg University.
