Dr. Jones Tours Temples in China


STRS professor Charles Jones will participate in the Woodenfish China Program from June 30 to July 24.  This program, organized jointly by the Fo Guang Shan temple in Taiwan and the Chinese Academy of Social Science, will take a group of scholars and graduate students in Chinese Buddhism on a tour of temple sites from Shanghai to Beijing to Mt. Wutai, where they will lodge and hear lectures from Chinese scholars.  After the tour, Dr. Jones will return to Beijing to visit with current STRS graduate student Meng Zhang and visit with Dr. Xianian Huang, one of the leading scholars in the field.
