Keynote Address by Prof. Thomas Tweed
Following the Flows: Reframing the Study of Buddhism

How has Buddhism outside Asia been shaped by diaspora and immigration? How has the increase in global tourism, communication, and capitalism affected the way Buddhism is understood, taught, and practiced?

These and other themes will be explored in a four-day conference, Buddhism without Borders: Contemporary Buddhism in the West, hosted by the Institute of Buddhist Studies, in Berkeley, California.
