Dr. Carrasco’s Penguin Pride

Our recent Shipka Speaker Dr. David Carrasco recently sent us a photo of himself in a “Fear the Penguin” shirt. I think we may have to make him an honorary YSU Penguin.

Dr. Jerryson in Copenhagen

Dr. Michael Jerryson was invited to present a paper on Buddhist violence in Asia, titled “Marketing the Buddha and its Blasphemy” at the BBB Copenhagen Conference at the University of Copenhagen. Drawing upon his fieldwork among militant monks in Southern Thailand and studies across Asia, Michael Jerryson spoke about how Buddhist monks can reconcile their faith with acts of violence, and how the Buddhist traditions similar to other religious systems contain scriptures and beliefs that justify violence.

For those that may have missed the Public Affairs program that aired at the beginning of summer, you can listen to it online here.
