Proposals sought for a proposed collection of essays entitled
"Buddhism: 'Eastern' Religion, World Literature" on interactions among
Buddhist faiths, writings, practices and "Western" literature. Most
interested in proposed histories of Buddhism and literature within a
single period (20-c British, for example); investigations of the
influence of a particular Buddhist school or Buddhist text over time or
over several texts, investigations of groups of similar texts by
different authors, or investigations of Buddhism within the work of
single significant figures, like Thoreau or Kerouac. Less interested in
investigations of a single text unless it is an undeniably important
one for the subject. Long proposals and vitae to James Najarian,, by 8/1/04.
