David Gray, Chair: Update
Two articles written by David Gray were published in edited volumes this Fall. One, entitled "Teaching Tantric Buddhism in an Undergraduate Classroom Context," was published as a chapter in the book Teaching Buddhism: New Insights on Understanding & Presenting the Traditions edited by Todd Lewis and Gary DeAngelis, Oxford University Press. This article outlines an approach to teaching tantric Buddhist traditions based upon his experience teaching at Santa Clara University. The second was entitled “Contemporary Tantric Buddhist Traditions.” It was included as a chapter in the Oxford Handbook of Contemporary Buddhism edited by Michael Jerryson, Oxford University Press. It is a survey of contemporary Tantric Buddhist traditions and some of the problems they have encountered as they attempt to adapt to the modern, globalized world.
