The National Institute of Japanese Literature (NIJL) is pleased to announce the Fourth Session of our "Materials Workshops" series, which now enters upon its second year. This time the workshop will focus on Zen-school vernacular sermon texts (kana-hōgo), and will be held online on April 27th, 9am-11am Japan time.

This series of workshops is designed to orient and instruct interested participants in the use, handling, and research application of primary-source documents. We particularly welcome the participation of graduate students and early career researchers.
(This is the first of the three sessions planned from April to September of 2021.)

Here follow (A) information about the upcoming 4/27 session, and (B) a brief overview of the workshop series and its goals.



[A] “Materials Workshop”: Session Ⅳ

Topic: Zen-school vernacular sermon texts (仮名法語)

Lecturer: Didier Davin ディディエ・ダヴァン (Associate Professor, NIJL)

Date: 4/27 (Tuesday)

Time:Tokyo 9am-11am

Venue: All sessions conducted on ZOOM, live and unrecorded

Description:

「仮名法語-中近世の仏教入門書-」
「仮名法語」と呼ばれている文献は必ずしも同質のジャンルを成していませんが、共通点としては仏教入門書であると言うことが出来ます。本ワークショップでは、簡単な概論を述べたあとに、臨済宗の仮名法語から具体例を見ながら仮名法語を紹介するとともに、仏教用語の調べ方や仏典の扱い方などについて簡単にお話します。
