"Narrative, Prescriptive, and Dogmatic Aspects of Conversion in Indian Buddhism A Typological Approach“

Hélène de Brux holds an M.A. in Asian Studies from the EPHE, Paris (2017). For her master’s thesis, she worked on the notion of Buddhist “miracles” (prātihārya), mainly focusing on episodes from the Saṅghabhedavastu. She is also interested in the art of the Gandhāran region, as she received a B.A. in art history with a focus on Indian art from the Ecole du Louvre, Paris (2012). She is currently working on her dissertation project about the concept of conversion in Early Buddhist narratives.
