Alex Wrona

E-mail

Alex is visiting Oxford this term from the University of Vienna where he is reading for a BA in Languages and Cultures of South Asia and Tibet – (3rd year).

His main interests are Pali, Theravada Buddhism and Sinhalese studies. During his stay he will be studying with various professors from Oxford.

He is pursuing his current Pali and Theravada studies because he is interested in the relations between Muslims and Buddhists, particular in South Asian and Arabic countries. For that reason he is also planning to start studying Arabic next year in Vienna.

Alex is the developer of the WiPitaka.  A web resource we co-host with him to encourage translations of the Pali canon into various languages.

Matthew Spencer

E-mail

M.St. in Oriental Studies (specialising in Pali).

Areas of interest: Pali language, Buddhist ethics, meditation theory and practice.

Matthew is especially interested in the application of contemplative practice to non-religious settings in healthcare and wider society, and the convergence of Buddhist traditions with them. In addition, he is researching metaethical theories as they relate to Buddhism and Pali texts in particular. His principal focus, however, is currently the Pali language.
