Please join us for the BSC 48th Summer Session with Dr. Scott Mitchell, author of Mid-Century Modern Buddhism, examines Buddhism in the United States before, during, and after World War II, when Nisei Jodo Shinshu Buddhists reacted to the trauma of racial and religious discrimination by laying claim to an American identity inclusive of their religious identity. In the pages of temple-supported magazines, such as the Berkeley Bussei, Nisei argued that Buddhism was both what made them good Americans but also what they had to contribute to America, a rational and scientific religion of peace.
We will be limiting our in-person attendance to 30 people, so please make sure to register at bit.ly/bscsummersession2022. We will also be livestreaming the lectures to our BSC Youtube page.
