Prof. Kodera will speak on: How the Academic Study of Religion Has Changed at Wellesley and Beyond.

Prof. Kodera says: "I am committed to the academic study of religion from the historical and comparative perspective, with a focus on Asia, broadly including both East Asia and South Asia. More specifically, I offer courses on Buddhism from its origin in India through its development in Tibet, China, Korea, Japan and the West. I am also interested in the inner relationship between a contemplative life and social and political responsibility, involving a variety of religious and cultural traditions.

At Wellesley, I helped develop Japanese Studies as part of East Asian Studies Program and Asian American Studies as part of American Studies."
