I’m excited to announce the launch of the Journal of Tibetan Literature. This is a project I’ve developed for the past 2 years in collaboration my co-editor Kurtis Schaeffer (University of Virginia), and managing editor Tenzin Dickie.
The Journal of Tibetan Literature (JTL) is a biannual, peer-reviewed, open access academic journal dedicated to publishing research, translation, and criticism on all aspects Tibetan-language texts from the origin of the written language to the present. JTL publishes research articles, long-form essays, literary criticism, translations, conference notes, and brief communications.
This inaugural issue includes eleven contributions, including critical essays from Janet Gyatso and Lama Jabb; research articles by Leonard van der Kuijp, Gedun Rabsal and Nicole Willock, and Brandon Dotson; translations by Rongwo Lugyal, Sarah Harding, Lowell Cook, and Lama Jabb; an interview with Gedun Rabsal (with video), and more.
JTL is supported by Tsadra Foundation and published in cooperation with the Buddhist Digital Resource Center.
