Kati Fitzgerald’s Yale project, entitled “No Pure Lands: The Contemporary Buddhism of Tibetan Lay Women,” will use ethnographic data collected in Tibetan areas of China and India to consider how women’s relationships, physical acts of religious devotion, chant and mantra recitation, and faith illustrate and enact an embodied conceptualization of contemporary Buddhism. This work theorizes sacred music as both liturgical recitation and as the soundscapes of domestic religion in contemporary Tibetan homes. Fitzgerald received a Ph.D. in comparative studies: religious studies from The Ohio State University in 2020.
