Forgetting to remember: towards an alternative Irish religious history?
QUB, Belfast
Oral Presentation
Optional Fields
Research over the past five years on two pioneering Irish Buddhists, Charles Pfoundes and U Dhammaloka, has repeatedly characterised them as not merely neglected but ‘forgotten’. One outcome of the research is that both are now rather widely remembered. This raises questions not only about why, when, how and by whom each was forgotten in the first place, but also about why, how and by whom they are being remembered now.
