INTRODUCTIOW
ANNE M. BLACKBURN, ITHACA, NEW YORK
The following essays by Thomas Borchert, Georges Dreyfus, JustinMcDaniel, and Jeffrey Samuels are among the signs of a growing interest in education among scholars
of
Buddhism. In addition to detailedaccounts of historical and contemporary educational practices in Tibetan,Sri Lankan, Yunnanese, and Thai-Lao contexts, these articles provide apowerful point
of
departure from which to think more broadly and comparatively about approaches to the study of Buddhist education. ThomasBorchert's essay examines the first Buddhist Studies Institute
(joxueyuan)
formed in Sipsongpanna in 1994, after the Chinese government altered itsstance toward religious education (and the training of religious specialists) in the 1980s. This Institute
is
a formal educational center for thetraining of young Theravadin monks in a geographical area at the intersection (historically, and in the present day)
of
the cultures we now know
as
Chinese, Thai, Lao and Burmese. Borchert's essay discusses Chinesegovernmental involvement in Buddhist education during the last twodecades, with special attention
to
the government's approach to Buddhisteducation in minority communities. Against this background, Borchertdescribes the curriculum -and some of the educational practices connected to it -used at the
foxueyuan
opened at Wat Pa Jie. He attendsalso
to
informal educational settings, such
as
sermons and work periods,in which monastic students participate.Borchert
is
explicitly concerned
to
explore the processes through which'identity'
is
formed in education and, especially, the relationships betweenChinese, Dai-Iue, and Buddhist identities
as
understood by students andteachers in Sipsongpanna. In doing so, Borchert examines the subjects set

I would like to thank T. Borchert,
G.
Dreyfus, I. McDaniel, and I. Samuels for theirinvitation to compose this introduction. I am also grateful to the anonymous reviewer
of
an earlier version
of
this short essay, whose comments proved very helpful.
