Women in Buddhism: Religion, Politics, and the Arts is a 24-month project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. At the heart of the project is a 4-week residential institute program for college and university teachers that will be hosted on the East-West Center campus in Honolulu by the Asian Studies Development Program. This multidisciplinary program will explore the evolving relational agencies of women from the origins of Buddhism into the modern era through deep and context-rich engagement with key traditions, practices, and primary texts. The program is designed to meet the needs of undergraduate educators addressing issues of diversity at the intersections among religion, gender, power, globalization, and cultural pluralism.
