During the summer, several faculty members participated in professional conferences. Professor Lauren Bausch presented her paper, “The Place of Vāc in the Cosmic Exchange,” at the World Sanskrit Conference in Vancouver in July. Professors Stacy Chen, Shari Epstein, and Franklyn Wu attended the “Global General Education and Asian Texts” conference in Irvine sponsored by the Association for Core Texts and Courses (ACTC). All three professors presented papers. DRBU has been invited to co-sponsor the next ACTC annual conference, to be held in St. John’s College, Santa Fe, in April 2019.
