Nelson Elliott Landry


St. Antony's College


DPhil Oriental Studies


Educational Background:

I did my undergrad at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in Religious Studies. Upon completion of my BA, I went on to Peking University, where I spent four years learning Mandarin Chinese and completing my MA in Buddhist Studies.

Research Interests:

I presently research the Tang dynasty Chinese monk Daoxuan (596-667). Specifically, I want to look at the influence visionary experience and encounter with the supernatural had on his later works, namely the Ji Shenzhou Sanbao Gantonglu 集神州三寶感通錄.
