About Jue Liang

I hold a BA and MA from Renmin University of China (2009, 2011), an MA from the University of Chicago (2013), and a PhD from the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Virginia (2020). My research and teaching engage with questions about continuities as well as innovations in the gender discourses of Buddhist communities. I am also interested in the theory and practice of translation in general, and translating Tibetan literature in particular. I am currently completing my first book, entitled Conceiving the Mother of Tibet: The Early Literary Lives of the Buddhist Saint Yeshé Tsogyel. At the same time, I am also working on a second project, tentatively titled Thus Has She Heard: Theorizing Gender in Contemporary Tibetan Buddhism.
Jue Liang is a scholar of Tibetan Buddhism. She is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and Severance Professor in the History of Religion at Case Western Reserve University.
