Centre for Bhutan Studies
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in 2012 between the Department of Indian and Tibetan Studies of the University of Hamburg and the Centre for Bhutan Studies (CBS), Thimphu, Bhutan, thereby agreeing to collaborate in promoting and pursuing cutting-edge text-based research on the intellectual history and intellectual culture of Bhutan’s Buddhist textual heritage and related material. As a first concrete step towards an active collaboration and in agreement with one of the declared visions of the KC-TBTS to train young students and traditional scholars to investigate Buddhist texts written in Classical Tibetan by means of historical-philological tools and techniques, the KC-TBTS, in collaboration with the CBS, has conducted in Thimphu the workshop “From Manuscripts & Xylographs to Modern Editions: Buddhist Textual Scholarship in Theory and Practice” in August 2013.
