International summer school
(BA and MA-levels, 7.5 ECTS)
University of Copenhagen ⋅ 27 July–7 August 2020

Join us for two weeks 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
