Summer Conference on:
"Women's Perspective in the Dharma Traditions" A
|THE 2013 CLAREMONT INTERNATIONAL JAIN CONFERENCE|
|WOMEN’S PERSPECTIVES IN THE DHARMA TRADITIONS|
|AUGUST 23 - 24, 2013|
Thanks to generous support from the Jain community, Claremont Lincoln’s Center for Jain Studies is able to host a major international conference every summer. This year, the August 23-24 conference will focus on women’s perspectives in the Dharma traditions.
Women’s voices are difficult to hear among traditional and contemporary Dharma texts. Yet, women are active and vibrant members of these communities. They are leaders, teachers, artists, philosophers, mothers, wives, professionals, politicians, monastics. This conference seeks to provide a forum to engage the evolving identity of all women through engagement with Dharmic texts, traditions, principles, roles, and communities.
CALL FOR PAPERS: Submissions are welcome from all traditions and gender identities. Abstracts are to be submitted by May 15th!
