Buddhism without Borders: Contemporary Developments in Buddhism in the West

March 18, 2010 12:00 pmtoMarch 21, 2010 12:00 pm

Buddhism without Borders: Contemporary Developments in Buddhism in the West

The Institute of Buddhist Studies will host “Buddhism without Borders: Contemporary Developments in Buddhism in the West” in Berkeley, CA, March 19 — 21, 2010.

This conference seeks to explore contemporary and historical developments of Buddhist thought and practice in American Buddhisms, Buddhisms in the West, or Buddhisms outside Asia. How has the Buddhist tradition been shaped by the transnational movement of peoples, diasporas, or immigration? How has the rise of global communication, tourism, and capitalism affected the way Buddhism is understood, taught, and practiced? How do we define “modern” Buddhism? The West? Or even “Buddhism” itself in an increasingly globalized world?

Confirmed panelists include:
Thomas A. Tweed (keynote address)
Charles Prebish
Richard Huges Seager
Jeff Wilson
Eve Mullen
Wakoh Shannon Hickey

For more up-to-date information on this conference, confirmed panelists, tentative schedules, and registration information, please visit the conference event and registration page.
