Elizabeth Morrison – Whiting Foundation fellowship
Elizabeth Morrison (Religion) has been awarded a fellowship from the Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation for a project titled In the Company of Pilgrims: The “Four Great Places” of the Life of the Buddha. The grant will enable Elizabeth to travel to northern India and Nepal to visit sites significant in the life of the Buddha and the history of the Indian Buddhist tradition. The goal of this project is to deepen her understanding of the early Indian Buddhist tradition while observing and experiencing the phenomenon of contemporary global Buddhist pilgrimage. The experience will enhance the full range of the classes she teaches in Asian religions.
