for the special issue of the journal Asian Studies


The first issue in 2016 will be dedicated to the Buddhist studies. It will explore the role of Buddhism in contemporary global, especially European societies. The call for papers is especially directed towards (but not limited to) the participants of the Symposium dedicated to the same topic, which took place at the Faculty of Art in Ljubljana from March 12th to 14th 2015.

The main purpose of the issue is to explore the role of this ancient thought in modern life, to investigate and analyze the current prevailing attitudes towards Buddhism, to enable new insights into its theoretical contents, and to introduce its new methods and practices.

Themes to be addressed may include contemporary Buddhist ritual customs; Buddhist social practices; the relationship between Buddhism and other religious traditions; the relationship between Buddhist institutions and the state; Buddhist monasticism and its relationship to the laity; Buddhist ethics; Buddhist "modernism," the concept of mindfulness, the relationship between Buddhism and psychology, neurology and cognitive sciences, and so on.

We welcome papers from scholars, researchers, PhD students and others who have expertise in the above mentioned topic.
