Buddhist Tourism outside of Asia

Building on Brooke Schedneck’s and Courtney Bruntz’s Buddhist Tourism in Asia, this panel’s papers could link to the volume’s themes of secularism and the sacred, tourist imaginaries and place-making, and commodification in Asia, compared with Buddhist tourist sites outside of Asia. Other possible topics might include how Buddhist tourist sites are created in the West, the ways Buddhist tourist sites adapt to locations outside Asia, and financial and economic models of Buddhist tourism in diasporic communities.
