The Lotsawa Translation Workshop is an opportunity to create a community of practice around the translation of Tibetan Buddhist texts, scheduled for October 13th-16th at Northwestern University with the generous support of the Tsadra Foundation and Luce Foundation. The thematic focus of the second Workshop will be an exploration of the many issues around translating the voices and experiences of Buddhist women from Tibetan sources into English. Inspired by the largest-ever compilation of writings by and about Buddhist women published in 53 Tibetan volumes in 2017 called the Ḍākinīs’ Great Dharma Treasury, this Lotsawa workshop will focus on a diverse array of Tibetan texts by and about women across time periods, including a wide array of genres and time periods ranging from classical Buddhist texts to modern Tibetan women’s writings.

Organized by:
Sarah Jacoby
Padma ‘tsho
Holly Gayley
Dominique Townsend

The Lotsawa Translation Workshop is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Tsadra Foundation and the Luce Foundation.
