“Rethinking Southeast Asian and Southern Buddhism” Workshop

Buddhist scholars across a range of disciplines have in recent decades subjected many fundamental categories of analysis to sustained, critical examination. In the process, they have opened up for investigation an expanding set of interpretive issues, while posing questions that fundamentally challenge many pre-existing scholarly presumptions, frameworks and models. This afternoon, ten scholars of Buddhism gathered at the Kahin Center for the “Rethinking Southeast Asian and Southern Buddhism” Workshop to scrutinize the paradigm shifts currently reconfiguring the scholarly treatment of Buddhism in mainland and maritime Southeast Asia. A range of topics were discussed, including engaged Buddhism, ethnicity, ethnography, law, networks, phenomenology, politico-religious practices, and syncretism.
