Dear IASFM members and forced migration studies community
It is my sad duty to inform the Buddhist Studies comminity of the passing of Dr. DUAN Qing (段晴), professor of Sanskrit & Middle Iranian languages at Peking University, on the morning of the 26th of March, 2022. Professor Duan was a prolific scholar who also headed the important Research Institute of Sanskrit Manuscripts & Buddhist Literature at Peking University. She was a mentor to many scholars active today. Her passing is a great loss to the field. I understand that an obituary will be released in the coming days.
