From the Ground Up: Buddhism and East Asian Religions Project

From the Ground Up aims to foster the next generation of scholars working on Buddhism and East Asian religions through innovative practices of research and training such as the creation of new digital materials made publicly accessible via cIRcle. These materials will act as the basis for scholarly symposia, conferences, and a rotating exhibition, all of which will establish UBC as a leading centre for the study of East Asian religions and cultures. This international and interdisciplinary project was made possible by a $2.5 million grant from the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and is being coordinated by the UBC Department of Asian Studies.
