Appointment of New Numata Chair of Buddhist Studies
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Professor Stefano Zacchetti to the Numata Chair of Buddhist Studies at Oxford University.
Here is a short bio for Professor Zacchetti. 1994 degree in Chinese; 1999 PhD, Venice University; further studies at Sichuan University, China, and Leiden University. 2001 to 2005 associate professor at the International Research Institute for Advanced Buddhology, Tokyo. 2005 to 2012 tenured lecturer at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.
His research focuses on early Chinese Buddhist literature (particularly translations and commentaries), and the history of the canon. His publications include the monograph In Praise of the Light (Tokyo 2005).
Professor Zachetti will be arriving in Oxford shortly and we are very much looking forward to his advice and collaboration in the future.
