Buddhist Critical––Constructive Reflection Group

Statement of Purpose: 

The Buddhist Critical-Constructive Reflection Group explores how Buddhist thought and practice can address contemporary issues and how Buddhist modes of understanding can inform or be informed by academic studies (in Religious Studies, Philosophy, Ethics, Theology, Sociology, Economics, etc.).

Call for Papers: 

The Buddhist Critical-Constructive Reflection Group explores how Buddhist thought and practice can address contemporary issues and how Buddhist modes of understanding can inform or be informed by academic studies (in Religious Studies, Philosophy, Ethics, Theology, Sociology, Economics, etc.). We invite paper or panel proposals on the following topics (or other topics) as they pertain to our mission to engage in Buddhist critical and constructive reflection: (A) moral injury and other forms of trauma, such as injury to conscience and feelings of shame after moral transgressions, and psychological harm caused by social injustice or domestic violence (with particular interest in diverse religious scriptural and cultural understandings of moral injury outside the Christian tradition) for a co-sponsored session with the Moral Injury and Recovery in Religion, Society, and Culture Group and the Warfare in Ancient Israel Group (SBL); (B) conflicts and forms of exclusion deriving from racial, socio-economic, political, sexual, and gender-based difference; (C) religious pluralism; (D) Buddhism professors as practitioners.
