Panelists Biographies  研討會發表者簡介

  1. Juhn Ahn 安俊泳 (University of Michigan)

Juhn Ahn is an Assistant Professor of Buddhist and Korean Studies at the University of Michigan. He studies death, illness, and Buddhism in East Asia. In his doctoral thesis he examined something called the “malady of meditation.” This is a “malady” or “defect” that continued to trouble Buddhist meditators in East Asia for centuries. He was particularly interested in the transformation of this malady or defect over time. In a number of different publications he tried to explain this transformation by situating the changing views of the malady of meditation in their proper historical contexts. He focused specifically on two Buddhist monks who spoke extensively about the malady of meditation: the Chinese Buddhist monk Dahui Zonggao (1089-1163) and the Japanese Buddhist monk Hakuin Ekaku (1686-1769). What drew him to these two towering figures of Chan and Zen is not only the critical role that they played in shaping the discourse about the malady of meditation but also their efforts to use the malady to make sense of problems associated with changing habits of reading among students of Chan and Zen.

His current research focuses on the relationship between Buddhist mortuary practices and elite identity formation in fourteenth century Korea. A small but growing number of families that belonged to the late Koryŏ elite began to abandon Buddhist mortuary practices, which they associated with waste and decadence, in favor of Neo-Confucian mortuary practices and in his recent publications he tries to explain why. Using, among other things, officials histories, biographies, funerary inscriptions, commemorative steles, and literary collections he tries to draw a connection between the rise of this rhetoric of decadence, the gradual shift in the cultural construction of elite identity during the late Koryŏ, and the influx of new social elements under Mongol rule.

  1. Barend J. ter Haar田海 (Oxford)

Barend J. ter Haar teaches Chinese studies at the University of Oxford, with a strong focus on cultural and religious history. Although first of all a social and cultural historian, the religious dimension is so central to Chinese traditional life that much of his research up to now has dealt with religious phenomena. In addition, he has worked extensively on issues of ethnic identity, violence and fear, and social organization. An important concern of his is to demonstrate that traditional culture and cultural patterns are still relevant today, as becomes visible for instance in the case of the Falun Gong or the ongoing role of exorcist violence in political contexts throughout the twentieth century. For those who read Dutch, he has published a history of China, entitled The Heavenly Mandate: The history of the Chinese Empire until 1911 or Het Hemels Mandaat: De Geschiedenis van het Chinese Keizerrijk (AUP: Amsterdam, 2009) with a somewhat revisionist view on the Chinese past. His book on the lay Buddhist group called the Non-Action Teachings (late 16th century to the present) has come out with Hawai’i University Press, as Practicing Scripture: A Lay Buddhist Movement in Late Imperial China.

  1. Wang Ching-wei 王晴薇 (新加坡漢傳佛學院/臺灣中華佛學研究所)

  1. Albert Welter 魏雅博(University of Arizona)

Albert Welter’s area of academic study is Chinese Buddhism, and he has published in the area of Japanese Buddhism as well. His main research focuses on the study of Buddhist texts in the transition from the late Tang (9th century) to the Song dynasty (10th-13th centuries). In recent years, he has published Monks, Rulers, and Literati: The Political Ascendancy of Chan Buddhism (Oxford, 2006), The Linji lu and the Creation of Chan Orthodoxy: The Development of Chan’s Records of Sayings Literature (Oxford, 2008), and Yongming Yanshou’s Conception of Chan in the Zongjing lu: A Special Transmission within the Scriptures (Oxford, 2011), in addition to numerous articles. His work also encompasses Buddhist interactions with Neo-Confucianism and literati culture. He is currently finishing a project on the social and institutional history of Buddhism as conceived through a text compiled in the early Song dynasty, Zanning’s Topical History of the Buddhist Clergy, to be published by Cambria Press in 2018. Stemming from this latter research interest, Professor Welter has also developed a broader interest in Chinese administrative policies toward religion, including Chinese notions of secularism and their impact on religious beliefs and practices, leading to a co-edited volume (with Jeffrey Newmark), Religion, Culture, and the Public Sphere in China and Japan (Palgrave-Macmillan, 2017). He recently received funding from the Khyentse Foundation for a project, « The Hangzhou Region and the Creation of East Asian Buddhism, » in conjunction with Zhejiang University, the Hangzhou Academy of Social Sciences, and the Hangzhou Buddhist Academy. He also received funding from the American Council of Learned Societies (with the support of the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation) for an international conference, “Creating the World of Chan/ Sŏn /Zen: Chinese Chan Buddhism and its Spread throughout East Asia.” Before coming to the University of Arizona, Dr. Welter was based in Canada, where his research projects were regularly supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
