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.

(1) This issue will examine the changing landscape of women in Buddhism;

(2) It will consider existing literature on the topic and will contribute to new avenues of research and scholarship.

Given the digital nature of the journal, there is no restrictions on the length of manuscripts, provided that the text is concise and comprehensive.
