Join us for our Oahu District Summer Session Neighbor Island speaking tour on June 28th, 2022 from 7 PM Hawaii time. Our guest speaker will be Dr. Scott Mitchell, Dean of the Institute of Buddhist Studies. He is a scholar of Buddhism in the West, Pure Land Buddhism, and Buddhist Modernism. He has taught classes on “American Buddhism” and “Buddhism and Popular Culture” for the past fifteen years. In this presentation, Dr. Mitchell will discuss the history of Jōdo Shinshū missionaries to the mainland US and their interactions with Western scholarship on Buddhism. He will discuss the ways in which these missionaries self-consciously promoted Buddhism outside the immigrant group, and how the contributions of Shin Buddhism have been neglected in scholarship on Buddhist modernism.
