 20161217日首屆佛教研究碩博士生國際學術研討會

2016 Fo Guang University Buddhist Studies Graduate Students’ Conference

 

由佛光大學佛教學系主辦之首屆「佛教研究碩博士生國際學術研討會」, 1217日在佛教學系碩士班英文組導師慧峰法師及全體同學的努力下,於宜蘭礁溪佛光大學雲水軒隆重開幕。

本次研討會有9位來自世界各地的傑出碩、博士生發表論文,包括香港大學的Amrita Nanda、釋延政,臺灣大學王美瑤,政治大學梁陳安、吳芝瑩,臺灣師範大學的Duncan Deaeth以及佛光大學釋見心、楊澤君和Gediminas Giedraitis,他們分別來自台灣、中國、馬來西亞、美國、孟加拉、立陶宛以及澳洲等七個國家。

此次會議以佛教研究為主軸,全程以英文進行,結合宗教、哲學及相關學科研究議題,目的在為國內外碩、博士生提供論文發表及學術交流之平台。會中特別邀請國立政治大學哲學系林鎮國教授於開場主題演講,並由佛光大學佛教學系黃繹勳教授、郭瑞教授(Eric Goodell)、鄭維儀教授三位擔任會議主持人。

佛光大學佛教學系主任陳一標教授於開幕式上表示,佛教學系碩士班英文組的創立,在華人世界的高等教育體系中可說是首創的,目的在培養佛教研究、教學的青年人才,希望未來能將佛教弘揚到西方國家。此次會議是碩班英文組成立十年來第一次舉辦學生論文發表研討會,期許這樣的會議往後能夠持續進行,成為學生以英文交流佛學研究的重要平台。

林鎮國教授在開場的主題演講中點出,全球化的趨勢是此場研討會以英文進行的原因之一。全球化並非只是口號,而是現實,應當鼓勵青年學者發表英文論文以達到國際水平,並促使中西交流以及思想多元的形成。在東亞世界裡,全球化並非現在才發生,早在十六世紀地理大發現時期就已開始。人們普遍習慣從自己的傳統中去認識佛教,卻很少從別的文化角度理解佛教。因此,今天舉辦的研討會,網羅了海內外各地研究生的佛學論文,實有助於從更多元的方式來觀察佛教。

慧峰法師指出,現在臺灣佛教發展興盛,但對於佛教研究及相關領域的碩、博士生,特別是國際學生而言,能夠發表論文的機會有限,因此有了舉辦此次研討會的構想。此次與會的來賓,不僅有來自海外學校的學生,還有國內許多國立大學的師生共同參與,不僅提供佛光大學佛教學系的研究生與各校青年才俊在佛學研究上的交流機會,亦藉此在臺灣與國際學界之間建立更多的學術互動。

    本次大會要特別感謝佛光山星雲大師與慈惠法師,長年對佛光大學佛教學系戮力支持,今日才得以為學生舉辦如此富有意義的學術活動。另外也要感謝佛教學院院長萬金川教授與佛教學系主任陳一標教授提供強而有力的後援,議程方始進行順利。最後要感謝遠道而來的林鎮國教授以及所有與會貴賓,令研討會增輝蒙益、嘉惠後學。

"Fo Guang University has been running MA English Track for 10 years at Fo Guang University since the beginning of the Department of Buddhist Studies. It was for the sake of foster talents and develops next generation of Dharma teachers and propagators to travel to the West and uses English for the dissemination Buddhist teaching. It was the first case to have an English program in Buddhist Studies in Taiwan and the Chinese world," said Prof. Chen I-Bau, The Chairman of Department of Buddhist Studies, Fo Guang University during the opening ceremony. "It is the 10th anniversary of MA English track and the first time to host a students' conference. I am glad to have so many young scholars here to participate and hope that this students' conference can continue in the future and be a platform for graduate students of Buddhist studies using English as the media."

 

Prof. Chen-kuo Lin delivered his keynote speech during the conference and indicated that globalization is the reason to held a conference in English. Globalization is not a slogan but phenomena and reality. Young scholars are encouraged to write in English to reach the international level. Migration of ideas and face-to-face pluralism are the key features of globalization. In East Asia, globalization did not occur recently but from the Age of Exploration since 16th century. Professor also indicated that people used to understand Buddhism from their own tradition but never try to understand Buddhism from the eyes of others.
