Relevant approaches include history, sociology, psychology, philosophy, literary criticism, and anthropology. Relevant issues include methodology in the study and teaching of religions; comparative themes such as myth, ritual, mysticism, community, and inter-religious contact; and issues specific to particular traditions. Some of the materials available from the listserv: Queen, Christopher. Syllabus from the seminar, Buddhism in America. (1992). Available from RELIGION listserv BUDDAMER SYLLABUS. Sperling, Elliot.

Trujillo or Robbie Barnett, Director, TIN INTERNET ADDRESS: Tibet Information Network DATE OF CREATION: October 1987 COMMENTS: The Tibet Information Network (TIN) is an independent, non-profit making organisation which collects and analyses information about the situation in Tibet. It works to help protect fundamental human rights in Tibet by fostering the flow of information from Tibet about current conditions in that country. The organisation began when a group of western tourists witnessed the shooting by Chinese police of a number of Tibetan demonstrators in Lhasa in October, 1987. The authorities denied that police had opened fire, expelled journalists and tourists, shut down telephone lines and impounded foreigners' photographs of the incident. As a result, a number of tourists came together to compile detailed accounts of what they had seen and to send these to the outside world. Later some of those who had witnessed similar incidents formed TIN in order to continue the collection of accurate and dispassionate information about the situation inside Tibet. TIN, now based in London, UK, continues to conduct research into conditions in Tibet. It monitors developments in the political and economic fields as well as matters relating to the environment, the education and health services, religion and the arts in Tibet. Particular attention is paid to issues that relate to the observance or otherwise of human rights. Information comes from researchers in the field, as well as from official Chinese and Tibetan sources which are monitored in London. Observations from foreign visitors and overseas press reports are also assessed. Interviews, documents and secondary sources are processed by a team of volunteer translators and editors, and a selection of information is published in regular News Updates. Urgent news reports are distributed by fax and electronic mail to priority users. Detailed studies are published as Special Reports; copies of original documents are also made available, ecxept where the confidentiality of sources might be compromised. TIN uses computer communications to transmit material quickly around the world. It maintains an on-going public conference (tibet.information/reg.tibet) on the APC computer network (including peacenet, greennet, geonet, nicarao, pegasus, web, and igc) and has a special mail service for usenet/bitnet users. Relevant materials are distributed to subscribing organisations throughout the world including human rights organisations, international agencies, governments, parliamentarians, and the media. The collection and distribution of the information is guided by several fundamental principles. TIN aims to provide accurate and objective information, and to be free from political bias or affiliation. It therefore maintains its independence from any other organisations as well as from governments. TIN supplies information and research material to its subscribers irrespective of their opinions and takes no part in campaigning or lobbying activities.
