Conference: "The Map and the World: Visions of the Buddhist Universe"
June 22, 2007
Na Phra That Road
Maps, text, and architecture render visible aspects of a Buddhist realm. Papers are invited from those working in religion, history, art, and cartography that re-examine images of the universe through the lens of Buddhist cosmology. Topics on these and other forms expressive of Buddhist spatial concepts will be considered; also welcomed are papers that elucidate effects of contact with non-Buddhist forms and perspectives. Papers are invited addressing examples from throughout the Buddhist world.
Conference organizers seek to take advantage of the unprecedented access to text, map, and image provided by digital technologies such as on-line databases, virtual reality, and geographic information systems. Materials related to conference themes will be compiled for use at the conference, in follow up workshops, and annotated distribution as educational resources.
Proposals of up to 300 words, together with CV, email, address, phone, and fax information, should be sent by email to Program Co-chairs Justin McDaniel, University of California, Riverside and Pattaratorn Chirapravati, California State University, Sacramento
