Join us in Boulder for the Lotsawa Translation Workshop!
The Lotsawa Translation Workshop is an opportunity to create a community of practice around the translation of Tibetan Buddhist texts, scheduled for October 5-8th at the University of Colorado Boulder with the generous support of the Tsadra Foundation.
The thematic focus of the workshop is Tibetan songs (mgur) and Buddhist devotion. The three-day workshop will combine lectures, panels, and break-out sessions in the morning with each afternoon dedicated to working on translations-in-progress by participants who apply to attend. We encourage junior translators, graduate students with advanced Tibetan literary skills, post-docs, and early-career faculty to apply.
We are delighted to announce our keynote speakers:
- Janet Gyatso (Harvard University) and Kurtis Schaeffer (University of Virginia) will dialogue about the study of Buddhist poetry and song (Tibetan and Sanskrit) in recent years;
- Lama Jabb (Oxford University), whose research focuses on modern Tibetan literature--and the interplay of orality and textuality--will give a lecture on Translating Tibetan Verse;
- Anne Klein (Rice University) will deliver the Trungpa Lecture in Buddhist Studies at Naropa as a pre-conference event on Thursday, October 4th and participate on the panel on the Dynamics of Devotion..
