Professors Adeana McNicholl (Vanderbilt University) and Ann Gleig (University of Central Florida) are looking for material to include in their co-directed project “Teaching Resources for Buddhism, Race and Racism,” which is being hosted at teachingbuddhism.net and funded by The Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation at the University of Toronto.
Their aim is to compile and provide a comprehensive list of primary and secondary material as well as teaching resources, including syllabi, lesson plans, and strategies, when teaching issues of race and racism in Buddhist Studies courses. It would be helpful if syllabi submitted included a brief description of the institutional and curricular context for the course. Topics can include Orientalism, decolonization, race, and ethnicity anywhere in the Buddhist world.
Please send any relevant material to Adeana McNicholl at email@example.com and Ann Gleig at firstname.lastname@example.org. Gathered resources will be published on teachingbuddhism.net.
“Teaching Resources for Buddhism, Race and Racism” is an extension of the University of Toronto’s Centre for Buddhist Buddhist Studies’ Online Resources for Teaching Buddhist Studies project. They are also collaborating with WISAR to collate a selection of these and other materials that are authored by or focused on women.
