This residential institute program for college and university teachers is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and will be hosted by the Asian Studies Development Program at the East-West Center in Honolulu. Moving chronologically from Buddhist origins through the 20th century, the institute program will engage key themes, traditions, practices and primary texts with an emphasis on the cultural and historical diversity of women’s experiences and agencies in Buddhist Asia. Co-directed by Peter Hershock (East-West Center) and Wendi Adamek (University of Calgary), the institute’s lectures, discussions, films, and site visits will enable participants to develop teaching materials for a wide range of humanities and social science courses.

Applications are welcomed from eligible fulltime and adjunct faculty, as well as qualified graduate students, at American colleges and universities. Applicants with less than 5 years in the profession will receive special consideration. Participants will receive a stipend of $3450 to defray costs for travel, housing, meals and incidentals. Lodging will be available at the East-West Center faculty guesthouse, Lincoln Hall.
