It is not acceptable to mistreat academic, intellectual or creative work that has been done by other people by representing it as your own original work. Academic integrity is important because it is the core value on which the University’s learning, teaching and research activities are based. Victoria University’s reputation for academic integrity adds value to your qualification.

5 SEMINAR SCHEDULE RELI 425, "Advanced Studies in Asian Religions" TRIMESTER ONE "The Mahāyāna Mahāparinirvā a sūtra in 5th­6th Century China" Instructor: Michael Radich ph (463)9477 [email protected] HU 216 The aim of this half of the course is to examine a major Mahyna Buddhist stra (scripture) entitled the Mahparinirv a stra, and aspects of its reception in China in the fifth and sixth centuries of the Common Era, when interpretation of and commentary on this text was one of the central foci of the developing Chinese Buddhist tradition. Students will be provided with a copy of the only existing English translation of this major primary text, and several seminar sessions will focus on the close reading of portions of it, which will be selected by consultation between the lecturer and students. In the course of our study, we will also read relevant studies in the relevant scholarly literature. The first few weeks of the course will be more lecture­style, to bring students up to speed with background knowledge necessary to coming to grips with the topic of the course. In later weeks, the format will shift more to discussion or seminar style. The course will be assessed on one essay of 5000 words. Like all Honours work, this essay is finally due on Friday October 23 2008. However, Michael Radich's portion of the course is run in T1 only, and there will therefore be a deadline for T1 essays on Friday June 19 2009. While work submitted after this date will still be graded, the lecturer cannot guarantee it will be given the extensive feedback usual for Honours work submitted in a timely fashion, nor that students will have the usual opportunities for rewriting. At Honours level, your research work is guided, and our intention is that you will take advantage of the detailed feedback we provide on essays when first submitted, to substantially rework and improve them where possible. I will therefore require that you discuss with me a research topic and provide a draft bibliography before the beginning of Week 7 (by Friday April 24). I will also require that you give me your best attempt at a finished version of the essay, for possible reworking where I think it admits of further improvement thereafter, by Week 11 (i.e. by Friday May 29). The deadline structure is thus: Friday April 24 Research topic and draft bibliography Friday May 29 Your best polished draft of the essay Friday June 19 Final deadline for revisions based on feedback Friday October 23 Final deadline for all Honours work programme­wide Failure to meet any of these deadlines will be reported to the Honours Coordinator. Attendance Attendance at all seminar sessions is an integral part of the course. Please make sure you attend every week, or, in cases where absence is truly unavoidable, that you contact the lecturer in advance.
