Mission:

As its long-term goal, this global network 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.
