Research: Crossing Boundaries: The "Ācārya" Community in Dali and their Textual Practices, 1382-1500.
A quote from Yuanyuan about her experience:
I am currently in Kunming, the capital city of Yunnan Province in China, conducting archival research for my dissertation project on the Buddhist community named "ācārya” in Dali (southwest China today) in the 14th-16th centuries. Due to COVID restrictions, the archives, libraries, and museums in China could be closed to the public at any time. Such indeterminacy is a big challenge to my work. But I am fortunately granted a very rare opportunity for the physical examination of the medieval Buddhist manuscripts housed in local institutions. The hands-on research on the manuscripts really excites me. For the prospective applicants of EAP fellowships, I would say specifying the purpose and work plan of your project in the proposal is important to the grant application.
Thank you Yuanyuan for sharing your story!
