Through the Faculty Career Enhancement (FaCE) project, the Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM) have awarded a $6,000 grant to Assistant Professor of Religion Asuka Sango and two colleagues at Luther College for a joint "Zen Stories for Today" project. Working with Gereon Kopf (Religion) and Benjamin Moore (Art) at Luther and a number of undergraduate student researchers, Sango will create interactive digital applications that allow students to explore Zen Buddhist religious texts. The team will develop interactive animations of key Zen “encounter dialogues” between masters and disciples, make audio recordings of interviews with Zen Buddhist practitioners and scholars on the dialogues, and build a set of resources which students and faculty can use to teach the dialogues. The project combines cutting-edge research and digital/interactive technology to facilitate learning across the liberal arts and to explore the intersections of faith and learning. More information is available on the ACM FaCE website.
