News from the Center for Contemporary Buddhist Studies, University of Copenhagen
The international research project Buddhism, Business and Believers — the BBB-project — is now entering the last year. Assistant Professor Elizabeth Williams-Oerberg will be out-stationed in India the coming year, from where she will work on her project Buddhism as a Unique Selling Point – Spiritual tourism and cultural survival in Ladakh.
The CCBS welcomes a new member of the team; Yasmin Cho (previously Columbia University). Yasmin has earned a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship in Horizon 2020 – Research and Innovation Framework Programme, European Commission. The next two years she will work on the project WIRED: The Role of Infrastructure in the Tibetan Buddhist Revival in Contemporary China. The project examines the infrastructural (dis)connections in Sino-Tibetan Buddhist relationships. We are so excited to have her here!
We are also happy that our latest publication by the BBB-project is available as open access: A special issue on Buddhism and economics: New theoretical frontiers. All six articles can be downloaded from the home page of Journal of Global Buddhism.
