Dowdey Participates in Panel Discussion on Buddhist Printing

Patrick Dowdey, curator at the Freeman Center for East Asian Studies, adjunct assistant professor of anthropology, and adjunct assistant professor of East Asian Studies, is a co-curator of Pearl of the Snowlands: Buddhist Printing at the Derge Parkhang, an exhibit of original prints from Tibetan Buddhists.

The exhibit will be held from Sept. 11 to Dec. 5 at The Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College in Chicago.  The prints from the Derge Parkhang are still created from hand-carved woodblocks, as they have been for over 300 years.

Dowdey will participate in a Nov. 21 panel discussion about the prints he helped retrieve from the monastery.
