Dear list members,

There will be a day-long workshop on Buddhism in Melbourne on Friday October 21.

Kind regards,
AABS Executive

Buddhism(s): Traditions, Philosophies, Practices

This interdisciplinary workshop highlights the numerous dimensions of the Buddhist world by focusing on a range of Buddhist traditions with diverse philosophical orientations and varying interpretations of Buddhist practice. Scholars from the fields of Asian Studies, Anthropology, History, Philosophy and China Studies will explore these dimensions through examining traditional Buddhist texts and contemporary expressions of Buddhism(s). The workshop schedule will allow ample time for discussion where we can engage with the idea of Buddhism in the plural and explore traditional and contemporary intersections of Buddhist thought and practice.

Speakers: Cristina Rocha (WSU); Judith Snodgrass (WSU); John Powers (Deakin); John Makeham (La Trobe); Leesa Davis (Deakin)
