Buddhist Studies at the AAR
M. Editor | November 16, 2011
The American Academy of Religion is the largest professional organization for scholars of religion in North America. Since 1981, the Buddhism Section within the AAR has been the most stable and diverse forum for Buddhist studies scholars to meet and share their work.
Every autumn, the AAR hosts a national conference bringing together scholars, students, and practitioners of a wide diversity of religious traditions. And this year’s conference is in San Francisco. So you can be sure that faculty and staff from the Institute of Buddhist Studies will be in attendance!
IBS Core Faculty member Scott Mitchell has prepared information on some of the Buddhist-related events at this weekend’s conference. Of note are a panel on Pure Land Buddhist Studies, the Buddhism in the West consultation, and a reception honoring the late Leslie Kawamura. Check out his faculty blog for more info.
