Meetings and Crossroads: The International Association of Buddhist Studies 17th Congress

In late August, the International Association of Buddhist Studies (IABS) held its 17th Congress at the University of Vienna. The event was attended by an international body of scholars with wide-ranging interests, from Vajrayana in Siberia to ideals of masculinity in ancient India. In this series of articles, our contributor Elsa Lau, who also presented at the congress, and Buddhistdoor senior correspondent Raymond Lam offer a glimpse of the conference and the scholars’ diverse research, from the curious and intriguing to the personal and affective.
