We are delighted to welcome Dominique Townsend (Bard College) for a guest lecture on her new book, A Buddhist Sensibility: Aesthetic Education at Tibet's Mindröling Monastery (Columbia University Press, 2021). Her lecture, "Renouncing Attachment, Embracing Aesthetics: Cultural Production in a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery,” will reflect on the question of how Tibetan Buddhist aesthetics — expressed through music, dance, incense, visual arts, and literature — work in relationship with Buddhist commitments to renunciation.
LECTURE IN PERSON: Thursday, October 21 at 4pm
British Studies Room, 5th Floor, Norlin Library on CU Boulder Campus
