Disagreeing with the Master: Teacher Resistance in Tibetan Life Writing

Geoff Barstow, Center Research Fellow

Monday, May 21, 2018 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Geoff Barstow studies Tibetan religion, history, and culture, and teaches in the OSU School of History, Philosophy, and Religion. His recent book, Food of Sinful Demons: Meat, Vegetarianism, and the Limits of Buddhism in Tibet (Columbia University Press, 2018) focuses on the history of vegetarianism on the Tibetan plateau, how animals were viewed, and what that can tell us about Tibetan Buddhism more broadly. Other publications include works in the Journal of Buddhist Ethics, and in the collections Sources of Tibetan Tradition (Columbia U Press, 2013), and Buddhist Luminaries: Inspired Advice by Nineteenth-Century Ecumenical Masters in Eastern Tibet (Wisdom, 2017). 

In this talk, he'll discuss his new project on teacher resistance in Tibetan life writing. 

*This talk was originally scheduled for the 14th. Please note the new date.
