Dunhuang Studies:
prospects and problems for the coming second century of research

International conference

September 3-5, 2009

St. Petersburg, Russia

to be organized by the Institute of Oriental Manuscripts of the Russian Academy of Sciences in cooperation with the International Dunhuang Liaison Committee for Dunhuang Studies

During the century following the legendary discovery of the cave library in Mogaoku (Gansu, China) in 1900 the Dunhuang studies developed into an independent field of research with its own historical background, resources and patterns. The investigation of the Dunhuang documents and art objects dispersed through museums and libraries worldwide started in early 1900s with primary cataloguing analysis of the basic sources. The work of the Dunhuang legacy deeply influenced the course of all the aspects of research relating to the medieval period of history in China and gave a tremendous impetus for the development of Sinology in other countries. The Dunhuang studies from the early stage required genuine collaboration of the international academic community. Scholars from every country keeping the Dunhuang collections contributed to the development of this immensely important branch of learning. The study of the Dunhuang manuscripts and art during the past hundred years has led to remarkable advances in the understanding of medieval Chinese history, society, literature, religion and culture. By the beginning of the twenty-first century, the large number of systematic catalogues, bibliographies, text critical editions and general works had been published. Access to the Dunhuang manuscripts of the largest text collections has become much easier, since the majority of them has been published in facsimile and in on-line archives. These magnificent achievements have established a solid base for the development of Dunhuang studies for this second century of research. For the present, the new research environment requires a rethinking of academic targets and the use of the new effective patterns for comprehensive scrutiny and study of the sources. The present emphasis for Dunhuang studies is to pursue a thorough research of the material which is already available and to make full access for the existing corpus of Dunhuang sources together with a complete up-to-date catalogue. At the same time the remarkable results of Dunhuang Studies within the broad area of Central Asian Studies can encourage the composition of fundamental general works.

Topics to be discussed by the Conference:

1. The significance of Dunhuang studies for the research of China and Central Asia. New academic prospects, avenues and methods.

2. Dunhuang written sources on the history, society, culture and religion of China and Central Asia.

3. Patterns for research, publication, comment and translation of Dunhuang manuscripts. Textual studies, critical analysis of sources, paleography.

4. Turfan and Central Asian written sources. Results of recent studies.

5. Prospects and problems of cataloguing and conservation. Database experience, virtual archives.

6. Dunhuang art and archeology.

7. The history of Dunhuang studies: expeditions, archives, collections.

Scholars should send both the 200-250 word abstract of their paper and their personal information (name, organization, post address, phone number, academic position, e-mail address) in English to: popova@mail.convey.ru or by fax (+7-812) 312-1465. The deadline is December 31, 2008.

“敦煌学:第二个百年的研究视角与论题”国际学术会议

会议时间:200993-5日。

1900年敦煌莫高窟(中国,甘肃)文献面世之日起,一百年来,敦煌学已发展成为一门具有独特发展历史、资料和研究方法的独立性学科。对散布于世界各地博物馆和图书馆的敦煌手稿和艺术品的研究始于20世纪初,当时主要对所收藏的敦煌文献进行了初步描述,同时对一些最主要的文献进行编目与考订。敦煌遗书的整理与刊布对研究中国中世纪史及与之相关的学科的发展产生了巨大影响,也带动了世界各国的汉学研究。敦煌学自其诞生之日起就需要国际学术组织的合作研究,拥有敦煌遗书收藏的各国学者也为发展这一重要的学术领域做出了自己的贡献。在过去的一百年里,对敦煌手稿和艺术品的研究促进和加深了我们对中国中世纪社会、历史、文学和文化特点等的整体把握。新世纪来临之际,国际敦煌学研究成就斐然:刊布了大量的系统编目、文献目录、出版了一系列论著和概括性成果。特别值得一提的是,大量副本以电子数据库形式在相关网站上刊布,大大方便了研究者对世界各地收藏的丰厚的敦煌文献的利用。上述成果为新时期敦煌学研究并取得新成就奠定了基础。面对新的学术研究条件,展望今后敦煌学的发展,要求我们确立新的研究目标,同时利用新的行之有效的方法对敦煌文献进行总体把握和研究。总结敦煌学百年成绩,在新的时期,让尚未刊布的敦煌文献用于学术研究、运用科技手段对大量已刊布文献进行新的编目和整理关乎敦煌学研究的未来。特别是:与敦煌学相关的中亚学成果使综合性研究成为可能。

有鉴于此,本次会议拟围绕以下题目开展对话,交换意见:

1.      敦煌学对研究中国及中央亚细亚之意义。新的视角、趋势和方法。

2.      敦煌文献与中国和中亚历史、社会、文化和宗教研究。

3.      敦煌文书的研究、刊布、注解和翻译;文献学、文献分析、古文书字。

4.      吐鲁番和中央亚细亚所出文书的最新研究成果。

5.      文献编目和保存中存在的问题、前景;最新编目、数字档案。

6.      敦煌艺术与考古。

7.      敦煌学史。科考、档案与收藏。

 

请将论文题目、个人信息(姓名、单位、职务、学位、联系地址、联系电话、电子邮箱)译成英文,并于20081231日前发至:popova@mail.convey.ru或传真+7812312-1465,以便安排日程。
