Clark Chilson speaking at Pittsburgh Buddhist Center on Saturday

Saturday November 11

4:30 - 5.30 pm : “How do academics in America study Buddhism?”
A talk by Prof. Clark Chilson, Department of Religious Studies, University of Pittsburgh
Abstract: "How do academics in America study Buddhism?" The study of Buddhism can be a transformative endeavor. For academics in Buddhist studies, however, the goal is not spiritual transformation but rather a deeper understanding of the words, thoughts, and actions of Buddhists. To give a glimpse into the world of academics who study Buddhism, I will first give a brief account of how I became involved in the study of Buddhism and then indicate different ways the life of the Buddha can be examined.
