This part of the Buddhist East Asia website will develop in earnest in the months leading up to and during the program. As you can see from the pull-down menu, this will be your point of access for the daily readings assigned by the Institute presenting faculty; maps; bibliographies and other materials submitted by presenters to help guide participant curriculum development efforts; and the curriculum/research projects developed by Institute participants over the 4 weeks of the program.


Included below is a week-by-week bibliography that provides a starting point for exploring scholarship on Buddhist East Asia.
