6. JAIN ACADEMIC EDUCATION CONFERENCE AT THE JAINA CONVENTION 2019
Until recently, Jain Dharma was largely unheard of in North America—even within the academic community. To address the misunderstanding it engendered and to share rationally the rich Jain philosophy in western academia, Jain community has taken up the challenge to rectify this situation.

Fortunately, several visionary leaders and donors in India and the Jain diaspora in North America came forward and started working to have a permanent presence of Jain Religion (for teaching and research) at several universities. We have Professorships, Lectureships and Post Doc fellowships) at several prestigious universities.

To share these activities, progress and the plan for the future, two informative and interactive sessions have been planned at the JAINA convention in Los Angeles. Sessions theme: Re-positioning Jainism in North America Through Academia. These sessions are open to all; however, Session 2 on Saturday, July 6th from 1 pm to 4 pm requires pre-registration at the convention website: www.jainaconvention.org
