CALL FOR PAPERS> Hangzhou Buddhist Culture Project, Hangzhou, May 17-18, 2019 (Albert Welter, University of Arizona)

The Hangzhou Buddhist Culture Project is an ambitious effort to reformulate the history of East Asian Buddhism from a thoroughly East Asian perspective. The history of Buddhism incorporates East Asia in meaningful ways, but still tends toward Indo-centrism. This makes sense if one considers India the birthplace and homeland of Buddhism. Yet the history of Buddhism covers 2500 years, and for the last 1000 years or so, India has ceased to be a significant ongoing source of Buddhist inspiration, and figures primarily in the passive memory rather than as an active agent.
