The objective of this academic initiative is twofold. First, it seeks to provide an opportunity for Khyentse Foundation doctoral students to foster a sense of community within their cohort, which otherwise is spread across the globe. Secondly, its objective is to enhance Northwestern graduate (and undergraduate) student’s exposure to a wide breadth of Buddhist Studies scholarship. The format I will describe below for this lecture series is intended not only to introduce students to varying scholarly methods, sources, and interpretations, but also to provide participating students with an opportunity to interact with a selection of important Buddhist Studies scholars and teachers active in the field today. Especially for graduate students entering the field of Buddhist Studies, having chances to get to know influential scholars and build scholarly relationships with them, as well as each other, can not only enhance students’ work, but can open doors to potential future employment.
