The Ho Center for Buddhist Studies is pleased to announce first postdoc Dr. Alexandra Kaloyanides.
"Choosing from a large pool of qualified candidates (testament to the strength of the field), we awarded the first postdoc to Dr. Alexandra Kaloyanides. Formerly the managing editor of Tricycle, Alex comes to us from Yale where she specialized in both Buddhist Studies and American religion. She has already secured a job in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina to begin upon completion of her postdoc with us. While at Stanford, in addition to teaching two courses (this year she will offer a course on Buddhist modernism), Alex plans to prepare her dissertation, “Heathens, Baptists, Buddhists: The American Missionary Encounter with Burmese Buddhism, 1813-1905,” for publication, and to begin work on a study of the rise of the modern insight meditation movement." from Lekha (HCBSS newsletter) by John Kieschnick.
