Be the Refuge: Raising the Voices of Asian American Buddhists
Dr. Tamara Ho will be in discussion with Chenxing Han about Han's debut book, Be the Refuge: Raising the Voices of Asian American Buddhists (North Atlantic Books, 2021). Weaving together ethnography, scholarship, and memoir, Be the Refuge counters the erasure of Asian American Buddhists by resisting essentialized tropes (Oriental monk, superstitious immigrant, banana Buddhist) and reinterpreting this complex and diverse group as trailblazers, bridge-builders, integrators, and refuge-makers.

This event helps us celebrate Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) Heritage Month and is co-sponsored by SJSU Humanities Department, the Chao Te Lin and Avatamsaka Education Fund, the SJSU Mosaic Cross Cultural Center, and the APIDA Task Force.

May 6, 2021 07:00 PM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)
