Hillary A. Langberg, visiting assistant professor of religion, has been named a 2022 Robert H. N. Ho Foundation Buddhism Public Scholar. The cohort of scholars, through a fellowship made possible by the American Council of Learned Societies and Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Global, will spend up to two years “bolster[ing] the capacity of museums and publications in Buddhist art and thought across all traditions and regions in which Buddhism is practiced.” Langberg will spend her fellowship at the National Museum of Asian Art at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. “Dr. Langberg’s research on our collection will help us design programs and digital experiences that inspire connections between historic and contemporary religious practices,” said Chase F. Robinson, director of the National Museum of Asian Art.
