Please join us on Friday, April 1 from 2:00 – 5:00 pm, for the Institute of Buddhist Studies’ first annual Graduate Student Symposium.
This year’s symposium will be a four-person panel composed of IBS and GTU students who will present ongoing research on Buddhism’s interaction with the modern world. Presenter include:
- Dianne Muller (DSPT): The Concepts of White Buddhism and Double Belonging in Contemporary America
- Trent Thornley (IBS): Coming Out Buddha
- Courtney Bruntz (GTU-PhD): Nanhai Guanyin and Notions of the Colossus
- Anthony Rodgers (IBS): Investigating Western Applications of Buddhadharma
This is our first annual symposium, a new venture of the IBS designed to give graduate students an opportunity for professional development. Small panels and colloquia provide students with an excellent setting in which to share their work and get feedback from their peers. Please come and support your fellow IBS and GTU students!
A light reception will follow the panel.
