Ann Gleig – Part 1

July 10 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Ann Gleig
TOPIC: “Losing Our Religion”
Ann Gleig is an associate professor of Religion and Cultural Studies at the University
of Central Florida. She is the author of American Dharma: Buddhism Beyond
Modernity (Yale University Press, 2019). She is currently working on a collaborative
book with Amy Langenberg on sexual misconduct and abuse in contemporary
Buddhism, which is under advance contract with Yale University Press.
Suggested Reading:
Bob Sharf, “Losing Our Religion” – Tricycle: The Buddhist Review.
Have Westerners created a new and viable form of Buddhism, or has something been lost in translation? Berkeley professor Robert Sharf argues that with our emphasis on individual experience and meditation, we risk cutting ourselves off from the benefits of a greater tradition.
