ANNOUNCEMENT: SUMMER INSTITUTE ON BUDDHISM AND SCIENCE
The Mangalam Research Center for Buddhist Languages is pleased to announce a summer institute on the theme Putting the Buddhism/Science Dialogue on a New Footing. Funded through a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation, the program will be held from July 17-26, 2017 in Berkeley, CA. It will bring together twenty leading scholars from the sciences and humanities for ten days of interaction that we believe will have a significant impact on this emerging field. The co-directors are William Waldron, Middlebury College, and Clifford Saron, University of California, Davis. Confirmed participants include Elena Antonova, Francisca Cho, Kalina Christoff, Cortland Dahl, Gaëlle Desbordes, Andrew Dreitcer, John Dunne, Shaun Gallagher, David Germano, Linda Heuman, Laurence Kirmayer, David McMahan, Ken Paller, Claire Petitmengin, David Presti, Catherine Shaddix, Michael Sheehy, and Martijn van Beek.
Please note that attendance at the summer Institute is by invitation only. However, there will be a public panel discussion on the themes of the Institute.
