Contemporary Buddhist Studies Summer School 2020

Please help spread the word! 

Do you know a Bachelor or Master’s student who might be interested in learning more about Buddhism in the Contemporary world? The Center for Contemporary Buddhist Studies at the University of Copenhagen is arranging a two week summer course of intense studies, where we will approach Contemporary Buddhism as an interdisciplinary topic of investigation. We will explore how ‘Buddhism’ is employed within various contexts in Asia and beyond, while paying attention to possible contradictions, contentions and contentment with contemporary issues such as:

  • Buddhist modernity and secularism
  • Commodification of Buddhism and the spiritual marketplace
  • Entanglements of Buddhism with politics
  • Buddhism and environmentalism
  • Buddhism and new media
  • Travels and cultural translations

The course will take place at the University of Copenhagen from July 27- August 7, 2020. For more information, read more at https://asiandynamics.ku.dk/english/education-at-ucph/summer-schools/contemporary-buddhism/
