Buddhist Critical-Constructive Reflection Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

The Buddhist Critical-Constructive Reflection Unit explores how Buddhist thought and practice can address contemporary issues and how Buddhist modes of understanding can inform or be informed by academic studies (in Religious Studies, Philosophy, Ethics, Theology, Sociology, Economics, etc.).

Call for Papers: 

The Buddhist Critical-Constructive Reflection Group explores how Buddhist thought and practice can address contemporary issues and how Buddhist modes of understanding can inform or be informed by academic studies (in Religious Studies, Philosophy, Ethics, Theology, Sociology, Economics, etc.). We invite paper or panel proposals on the following topics as they pertain to our mission to engage in Buddhist critical and constructive reflection. Please note that in 2019 we will particularly invest in the roundtable format so as to enhance discussion.


● Secularism, post-secularism, and interpretations of Buddhism;

● innovations in Buddhist chaplaincy;

● Buddhism, transgender, and queer theory;

● minority within minority (such as Black or latinx Buddhists, Korean Buddhists in the America where the majority of Korean immigrants are Christian, and queer-identified Buddhists in non-Buddhist-majority countries); and

● follow-up roundtable discussion on sexual scandals.
