Hamburg Buddhist Studies
Buddhism has enjoyed a prominent place in the study of Asian religious ideas at Hamburg University for almost 100 years, ever since the birth of Buddhist Studies in Germany. The University is one of the pioneering academic institutions in Europe at which the study of Buddhism became a core subject for students focusing on the religious dimensions of South and Central Asia.
With the publication series “Hamburg Buddhist Studies” (ISSN Print 2190-6769), the Center for Buddhist Studies at Hamburg University aims to honor this long-standing commitment to research and share the results of this tradition with the community of scholars and the wider public.
The new series of Hamburg Buddhist Studies will also contribute to opening up Buddhist Studies to those who are not necessarily trained in the classical languages of the Buddhist traditions but want to approach the field with their own disciplinary interests in mind.
