Event Details

The Buddhist Studies Group at the University of Virginia is pleased to announce a conference to be hosted on the UVa Grounds from September 14 -16, 2012.  Our interdisciplinary graduate student conference, entitled “Buddhist Traditions: New Directions,” will open with a keynote address delivered by Gregory Schopen, esteemed scholar whose  pioneering work  in early Mahayana Buddhism is a model for the “new directions” toward which this conference is aimed.  In addition to paper presentations, we will also host an expert panel and workshop on new directions in teaching Buddhism to undergraduates.  UVa’s more than thirty graduate students in Buddhist Studies look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be an enriching collaborative experience.
