E-learning Course on Asian Buddhist Women

Here’s an announcement about an upcoming E-learning course on Buddhist women in Asia. Sounds like it will be very interesting.

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 will start on 14 April and will be 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.
