My name is Scott Mitchell, and I’m the Dean of the Institute of Buddhist Studies and the co-host of the DharmaRealm podcast. I teach and write about Buddhism in the West, Buddhist modernism, Pure Land Buddhism, and Buddhism and media.
Not that you should buy things from Amazon, but my books are there (maybe see what’s available at your local bookstore then leave me an Amazon review?).
My Zotero account lists all (most?) of my publications.
Follow my academic work on Humanities Commons.
And follow me on Twitter for sarcasm and gifs.
