Call for Proposals for November Meeting

Author Meets Author: The Two Truths in Buddhist Studies (Contact: Kin Cheung,, Jue Liang,, and Andrew S. Taylor,

This roundtable invites Buddhist Studies scholars to take part in an exercise of self-reflection. Each speaker will pick a category (gender, feminism, agency, body, mind, medicine, healing, science, ...) and critically examine their engagement with these categories in Buddhist Studies by making two opposing arguments that are equally valid. By doing so, we hope to open up a space to articulate the challenges we face in putting emic categories in dialogue with more traditional religious studies categories, and what we gain and lose by doing so.
