Dr. Yasmin Cho will join the CCBS

We are very happy to announce that the Center for Contemporary Buddhist Studies can welcome a new colleague in the fall of 2019.

Yasmin Cho will begin her 2-year Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship at our center. She will work on the research project WIRED:  The Role of Infrastructure in the Tibetan Buddhist Revival in Contemporary China.

The project explores the growing infrastructural connections between Tibet and China, from remote Tibetan regions to Chinese metropolitan areas, by looking at internet access, new construction, roadways, facilities, practices, and policies and examining their impact on the Tibetan Buddhist revival in China and vice versa.

News about the MSC fellowships 2018, including a brief interview with CCBS Director Trine Brox, can be read (in Danish) here.
