Boundation & Bindass: Emplacing Ambedkarite in Global Buddhist Movement

341 Eggers Hall

Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

Mallory Hennigar, PhD Candidate from the Department of Religion at Syracuse University, will talk about the Nagaloka Center in Nagpur, Maharashtra, a global Britain-based Triratna Buddhist Community that offers Buddhist training to scheduled caste and tribe youths from across India. This talk explores the tensions Ambedkarite students feel between the “boundation” or restriction of participating in rigorous Buddhist training and the mobility they hope to gain through this training by putting it into conversation with the broader tension of turning to a British Buddhist movement for a solution to caste oppression in postcolonial India.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
