Hot off the Presses: Matthew King

"Ocean of Milk, Ocean of Blood"

The Center for Ideas and Society presents a book talk with:

Matthew King
(Assistant Professor in Transnational Buddhism, Department of Religious Studies)

After the fall of the Qing empire, amid nationalist and socialist upheaval, Buddhist monks in the Mongolian frontiers of the Soviet Union and Republican China faced a chaotic and increasingly uncertain world. In this book, Matthew W. King tells the story of one Mongolian monk’s efforts to defend Buddhist monasticism in revolutionary times, revealing an unexplored landscape of countermodern Buddhisms beyond old imperial formations and the newly invented national subject.
