【Announcement】 Workshop on Tannishō Commentarial Materials at UC Berkeley (Fifth Meeting)

Date
March 1-3, 2019
Place
University of California, Berkeley
Presenter
(Timetable)

The Research Center for World Buddhist Cultures, Ryukoku University together with the Centers for Japanese Studies and Buddhist Studies at the University of California, Berkeley and the Shin Buddhist Comprehensive Research Institute at Otani University announce the fifth in a series of workshops led by Mark Blum, Michael Conway, and Mitsuya Dake devoted to the critical examination of premodern and modern hermeneutics of the Tannishō, a core text of Shin school of Buddhism, and arguably the most well-read religious text in postwar Japan.

 

This current workshop will be held from March 1 to 3, 2019, at the University of California, Berkeley. The first workshop was held successfully in March 2017 in Berkley and succeeding workshops will continue until 2021, with meetings planned twice a year, in late March in Berkeley and early August in Kyoto, where it will be hosted alternately by Otani and Ryukoku Universities.

 

Organized around close readings of the most influential materials produced in early modern and modern Japan, the workshop aims at producing a critical, annotated translation detailing the salient ways in which this text has been both inspirational and controversial, as well as a series of essays analyzing a wide spectrum of voices in Japanese scholarship and preaching that have spoken on this work.

 

The current workshop will focus on a careful reading of Edo-period commentaries by Enchi (1662), Jukoku (1740), Jinrei (1801-1808), and Ryōshō (1841). There will also be presentations by participants in the previous workshops related to modern period commentaries by authors such as Akegarasu Haya (1911), Chikazumi Jōkan (1930), and Soga Ryōjin (1947), as well as important themes within the Tannishō itself.

 

Cost

There is no participation fee.
