A conversation with Diana Eck

Diana EckFredric Wertham Professor of Law and Psychiatry in Society at Harvard University, invites Harvard alumni and friends to join her in a conversation about India: A Sacred Geography. Eck’s book explores the sacred places of India, taking the reader on an extraordinary trip through the beliefs and history of this rich and profound place, as well as providing a basic introduction to Hindu religious ideas and how those ideas influence our understanding of the modern sense of “India” as a nation. Additionally, she will address the Pluralism Project, which explores and interprets the religious dimensions of America’s new immigration; the growth of Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Jain, and Zoroastrian communities in the United States.

By invitation only.
