十六国北朝是在中国历史上的重要时期,其中从北方草原游牧民族向南扩展。在两百年之久的统治,从第四到第六个世纪广告,在各民族的北部地区看到严重的冲突爆发在不同的族群。即便如此,事实证明这些能合作组,中国文明能够蓬勃发展。无疑,该核心作用ESTA发展起到了佛教。我们如何可达到在外来宗教,民族和异质中国传统文化,社会结构,当时的相互作用的一个全面的了解?这是一个关键问题,许多学者,激发。

由于自20世纪考古学和艺术史的发展,大量的材料已经从这一时期发现和重新诠释。丰富的洞穴寺庙和雕像,以及其他文物,其中寺院遗址,存储孔和墓葬,呼吁跨学科合作,以产生新的见解对佛学研究。这是在最近的成就由历史学家和考古学家一个具有挑战性的,但令人兴奋的任务就是建设获取更深入地了解佛教在从多学科角度包括宗教研究,哲学,民族学,考古学和艺术史ESTA时期。北方各族ADH与中亚国家和游牧权力密切的军事和政治关系。明里暗里,存在着之间的交流和互动的中国文化,印度文化,西亚乃至罗马文化。因此,“佛教和种族在十六国北朝时期”的研究必须考虑到考古发现与中国相关的学术研究之外。

In June 2017, the Center for Buddhist Education and Research of Peking University held its first postgraduate summer seminar / training workshop of Buddhism and Ethnicity in the Sixteen Kingdoms and Northern Dynasties. Twenty-eight outstanding students from 18 domestic and international universities and research institutes participated in the intensive course. Eight professors from Peking University, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Tsinghua University, and Beijing Normal University gave fine lectures and guided younger scholars toward interdisciplinary academic communication. In the last half-day of the trainee forum, trainees presented their own papers and thereby inspired each other. This year, from June 23 to July 1, 2018, the 2nd International Summer Seminar / Training Workshop for Graduate Students and Young Scholars will be held at Peking University. The program will be hosted by the Harvard-Yenching Institute, the Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies of Peking University and the Center for Buddhist Education and Research of Peking University. In this program we will continue to strive for an in-depth study of Buddhism and ethnic relations during this historical period to develop better understanding of the social and ideological changes underway during the 4th-6th centuries.
