Dự án nghiên cứu xuyên quốc gia, đa lĩnh vực này đã nhận được tài trợ 2,5 triệu C$ (khoảng 43,5 tỷ VND) của Quỹ nghiên cứu khoa học xã hội và nhân văn Ca-na-đa, và hỗ trợ đồng bộ có trị giá 11 triệu C$ (khoảng 190,4 tỷ VND) do trường Đại học British Columbia Ca-na-đa(UBC) và hơn 20 cơ quan hợp tác ở Ca-na-đa và các nước trên thế giới cung cấp. Dự án này đã hội tụ 45 nhà nghiên cứu thuộc 22 trung tâm nghiên cứu khác nhau trên thế giới. Dựa trên cơ sở thu thập tài liệu tôn giáo và khảo sát thực tiễn, dự án này sẽ phân tích các tài liệu văn bản, thực vật và kết quả khảo sát thực tiễn, nhằm đào tạo ra thế hệ trẻ các nhà nghiên cứu về tôn giáo của Đông Á. Các tiểu nhóm nghiên cứu ở các nước sẽ đề ra chương trình đào tạo, hướng dẫn các học giả và nghiên cứu sinh đi đến tận các địa điểm thực hiện hoạt động tôn giáo xưa và nay trên vùng đất Đông Á, để thu thập tài liệu các loại, gồm những bức ảnh, video và hình ảnh 3D. Các tài liệu nói trên sẽ được thu xếp lại và lưu trữ trong kho dữ liệu số của trường Đại học British Columbia Ca-na-đa. Phương pháp nghiên cứu các tôn giáo Đông Á dựa trên cơ sở trải nghiệm thực tiễn này sẽ phá vỡ hàng rào giữa các ngành học khoa học, góp phần thúc đẩy trường UBC vươn lên hàng đầu trong lĩnh vực giao lưu khoa học về lịch sử tôn giáo.

International Conference: From the Silk to the Book Road(s): Abstracts

Please click here to return to the main conference page. Bian Dongbo 卞東波 (University of Nanjing 南京大學): 漢籍東傳與異域闡釋——論中國詩僧文集的日本注本 中國晚唐以降,形成了“詩禪合一”的觀念,唐代詩僧尚顏《讀齊己上人集》云:“詩為儒者禪,此格的惟仙。”(《全唐詩》卷八四八)徐寅《雅道機要》亦云:“夫詩者,儒中之禪也。一言契道,萬古咸知。”宋人吳可《學詩三首》第一首则云:“學詩渾似學參禪。”所以從中晚唐開始就出現了大量的“詩僧”,也产生了中國文學史上的“禅文学”或“文字禅”,中國歷代詩僧的文集很多流傳至今。不過,也有不少詩僧文集在中國本土失傳,但東傳到日本,並在日本被翻刻,如南宋詩僧釋善珍的《藏叟摘稿》、釋行肇的《淮海拏音》、釋行海的《雪岑和尚續集》,元代詩僧釋道惠的《廬山外集》、釋至仁的《澹居稿》等。除此之外,日本江戶時代還出現了不少注釋中國詩僧文集的注釋書,如有唐代詩僧貫休《山居詩》的注本《禪月大師山居詩略注》,宋代詩僧雪竇重顯的《祖英集》的注本《冠注祖英集》,宋代詩僧釋惠洪的《石門文字禪》的注本《注石門文字禪》,元代詩僧釋英的《白雲集》的注本《鼇頭白雲詩集》。當然最多的注本是唐代《寒山集》的注本,光漢文注就有四種,已經全部收入筆者所編的《寒山詩日本古注本叢刊》(鳳凰出版社,2017年)中。本文對這些注本的書志特色、文獻價值,以及學術內涵和文化意義進行了研究。筆者發現,日本江戶時代這些注本的作者基本上都是日本的禪師,能夠“以釋注釋”,故能對集中的佛教詞彙與義理有所把所致。同時,禪宗是伴隨著宋學傳入日本的,朱子學對日本禪宗也產生一定的影響,朱子學對格物致知,對“道問學”的講求,都影響到日本的中世與近世禪林,所以日本禪林普遍注重對知識的學習,不但刊刻了大量的外典,而且對禪文學的發展也做出了很大的貢獻。這些注本有很強的學術性,當然這些注本的出現與日本禪宗在日本重興密切相。本文將從東籍東傳與異域之眼的角度透視來中國詩僧文集的日本注本。 Chen Jinhua 陳金華 (UBC): The An Lushan Rebellion and East Asian Buddhism: With a Focus on Tang-Zhou China’s Commercial and Religious Ties with Central Asia “ 安史之亂”與東亞佛教:聚焦唐周帝國(655-705)與中亞的商貿與宗教聯繫 This paper provides

Writing “The Book of Rivers and Lakes”

September 1-2, 2017. Vancouver, Canada.
“Writing The Book of Rivers and Lakes (Jianghu)” was a planning workshop for a co-authored encyclopedic book-length study entitled The Book of River and Lake. The Book will focus on an enduring and influential Chinese concept, known as jianghu. Jianghu (literally, “rivers and lakes”) is an imaginary realm away from home and hearth. Jianghu, a fluid type of cultural imaginary, is also intimately connected to the notion of a solid and stable “Middle Kingdom”; over the centuries, notions of unruly and uncivilized border regions have helped to shape ideas of empire and nation. This workshop brought together specialists in a variety of fields to design a learning, teaching, and research resource related to this influential cultural idea.
