Dr. Margaret Cone
The Joys and Sorrows of Pali
Margaret Cone has been writing a Dictionary of Pali for the last 30 years. With two volumes published and further parts in preparation, it has been described as “a truly significant publication for both Pali studies and Buddhist studies more generally” and is likely to remain the principle lexical resource for scholars working with Pali texts for some generations to come. In this talk Dr. Cone will discuss this remarkable project and some of its most significant – and at times daunting – challenges.
All welcome. Refreshments from 5pm.
