Women in Buddhism: Religion, Politics, and the Arts centers on a 4-week institute for college and university teachers hosted on the East-West Center's Honolulu campus, followed by two online workshops, the development of a participant-generated video resource repository, two conference panels, and an edited book. This program will explore the evolving relational agencies of women from the origins of Buddhism into the modern era through deep, context-rich engagement with key traditions, practices, and primary texts. It is designed to meet the needs of undergraduate educators addressing issues of diversity at intersections among religion, gender, power, globalization, and cultural pluralism.
