Early 20th century Japanese Buddhist Perceptions of Western Imperialism and Why they Matter with guest speaker John LoBreglio, Oxford Brookes University

John LoBreglio&aphos;s doctoral research examines the doctrinal, ritual and institutional modernisation of Sōtō Zen Buddhism during the Meiji period (1868-1911) and considers the implications that these changes have for the Buddhist institutions in contemporary Japan.

He is also interested in the study of Japanese religions from pre-history to the present, East Asian Buddhism generally, and methodological issues in the study of religion.
