Buddhist Traditions: New Directions; 9/14-16/2012

This is a reminder to submit your paper proposal for the 2012 North American Graduate Student Conference in Buddhist Studies, "Buddhist Traditions: New Directions," hosted by the University of Virginia on September 14-16, 2012. The submission deadline is now extended to April 10. Please email your 500-word proposal, along with a brief bio, to buddhiststudiesgroup@virginia.edu.

We are delighted to announce that Gregory Schopen, esteemed scholar and pioneer in Buddhist Studies, will deliver our opening keynote address. The model he has forged of bringing economics, legal studies, and social history to bear on the study of Buddhism was an early harbinger of the "New Directions" toward which this conference aspires.

Please visit the conference website for ongoing information about the schedule. We look forward to hearing from you.
