August 2007

Stephen F. Teiser, D. T. Suzuki Professor in Buddhist Studies and Professor of Religion at Princeton University, was awarded the Prix Stanislas Julien by the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres (Institut de France) for his 2006 book, Reinventing the Wheel: Paintings of Rebirth in Medieval Buddhist Temples. The Stanislas Julien Prize, awarded by France’s most distinguished academy, recognizes Western-language scholarship on the Asian Humanities.

The prize is named after the second holder of the chair in Chinese studies at the Collège de France, Stanislas Julien (1797-1873), who translated the classics of Confucianism and Taoism into Latin and French, and who wrote on the silk industry, porcelain, Chinese Buddhist pilgrims to India, Sanskrit and Chinese grammar, and other topics on the interaction between China and the west.
