Past Conferences and Workshops:


October 4-5, 2013
Bordering the Borderless: Faces of Modern Buddhism in East Asia
The conference seeks to examine multiple aspects of modern East Asian Buddhism from a transnational perspective. It will also illuminate how local concerns were at the same time national, transnational, and global¿and vice versa. This approach will complicate the historiographies of East Asian colonialism and modernity, which has tended to confine itself to the nationalistic paradigm. The goal of the conference is to bring to light the dynamics of the Buddhist traditions at the crossroads of tradition and modernity, and identity formation and transformation.

Sponsors: Duke's Asian Pacific Studies Institute (APSI) and Religion and Asian & Middle Eastern Studies departments; Research Institute for Korean Studies at Korea University (RIKS); The Anguk Seon Center Foundation; Young Do Cultural Center Foundation; Duke's Office of Global Strategy and Programs; Arts and Sciences; Triangle Center for Japanese Studies; Carolina Asia Center; Duke Korea Forum
