Regarding an ongoing research project at Columbia University, Barnard student Sabrina Singer reflected that when she walks around the campus, now, she wonders: “What else is history going to forget?”[1] The research Singer and her colleagues are doing looks at the historical ties between the institution now educating them and the historical institution of slavery. We were prompted to similar reflections having visited Yale’s Peabody Museum and an exhibit there of Elihu Yale’s gemstones collection. Included in the display is a painting of Yale: he is pictured with a large unfinished diamond ring symbolizing Britain’s dominance over India.

The whole world was a refugee now that the war had at last ended.

Any man, even the greatest, can be broken in a moment and has no refuge. Any theory which denies this is a lie. For myself, I have no theories.

Dear Colleagues,

The topic of women in Buddhism spans a large geographical and historical expanse, beginning some 2500 years ago during the lifetime of the historical Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama. Throughout the history of Buddhism, women—their status within the traditions, their contributions, and their myriad roles—have been a subject of attention and concern.  The present volume seeks to examine how women’s roles in Buddhism have changed over time, how the women’s ordination movement has developed in specific contexts, and how women have changed the landscape of Buddhism, both as practitioners (lay and monastic) and as scholars in the field.

The interdisciplinary field of the environmental humanities offers new ways of considering tropical disasters.  Hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and similar incidents were once thought to be acts of God or isolated natural occurrences.  New eco-critical approaches to the field, however, challenge the separation between human activity and environmental events.
