CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Proposals Due: February 22, 2019
a very bright undergraduate student who is a studio art major wants to to a research project on the ways in which contemporary Western (visual) artists have been inspired by Buddhism (Buddhist art, philosophy, meditation...). This is so not my field, but I find the question interesting. If any references come to mind that could help her, I'd appreciate if you could send them my way. Respond off-list if you think that this is too basic a question for H-Buddhism: email@example.com.
Thanks in advance! Best,
Peter Boghossian, the only one of the three authors of the "grievance studies" hoax who holds an academic position has now said that he will be the subject of a disciplinary hearing by Portland State University. The charges are that he knowingly published falsified data and that he failed to obtain institutional permission before conducting his research.
