Once again, Ven Anālayo has organised an online lecture course, this year on the theme of ‘Asian Buddhist Women’. Last year’s lectures were very informative and often interesting, bringing scholars from around the world into our living rooms via the internet. The whole course is without charge. Here are the details:
‘The Numata Center for Buddhist Studies at the University of Hamburg, in cooperation with the Dharma Drum Institute of Liberal Arts, offers an E-learning Course on Asian Buddhist Women. The course consists of a series of lectures by a group of international scholars. Participation is free of charge and open to anyone interested, but requires online registration. Lectures start on the 14 April and are held every Thursday at 2.15 pm German time. Recordings of the lecture are accessible for registered participants at any time of their convenience after original delivery. The e-learning platform also features a discussion forum for exchange between participants and lecturers.
