Mission:

As its long-term goal, this Tianzhu Global Network for the Study of Buddhist Cultures promotes innovative study of Buddhism and East Asian Cultures that crosses the boundaries between disciplines, countries, cultures, and religions. This global network significantly complements a $2.5-million grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) to support an international and interdisciplinary collaborative project called “From the Ground Up: East Asian Religions through Multi-Media Sources and Interdisciplinary Perspectives.” The project aims to build a public collection of religious materials, including texts, artifacts, photographs, and recordings at UBC to enhance public and scholarly understanding of Buddhism and East Asian cultures.
