Public Lecture by Centre of Buddhist Studies, HKU
 
Topic:
Buddhist Myths of Origins and the Evolution of Gender Differentiation
 
Speaker:
Professor Jose Cabezon
(University of California, Santa Barbara)
 
Date:
December 9, 2011 (Fri)
 
Time:
 
1600-1800
 
Venue:
T6, 1/F Meng Wah Complex, HKU
 
Abstract of lecture:
Like most religious literatures, Buddhist sources espouse a complex theory of human embodiment. Found in bits and pieces throughout canonical and post-canonical literature, these theories are often elaborated through narratives about how human beings become sexually differentiated. This lecture examines some of these sources. The talk argues that Buddhist monasticism is, among other things, a mimetic reenactment of life in the early Buddhist universe.
 
About the speaker:
Jose Ignacio Cabezon is Professor of Tibetan Buddhism and Cultural Studies and Chair of the Religious Studies Department of the University of California Santa Barbara. He has published some twelve books and almost one hundred articles on themes ranging from Buddhist Philosophy to identity politics in the study of religion.
