Joshua Schapiro

Prof. Schapiro studied comparative religion as an undergraduate at Columbia University before pursuing a degree in Buddhist Studies at Harvard University, where he earned a PhD in 2012. His scholarship has primarily focused on Tibetan Buddhist ideas about teachers and teaching, as well as on Tibetan forms of advice writing.

Schapiro teaches a range of courses on Asian Religions at Fordham, including classes on Buddhism, Hinduism, Chinese Religions and Japanese Religions. His classes incorporate semester-long reflections on a variety of themes, including Ethics & Responsibility (Hindu Literature and Ethics), Literary Rhetoric (Classic Buddhist Texts), Aesthetics (Japanese Religions), Becoming (more) Human (Chinese Religions), the Value of Knowledge (Buddhist Meditation), and American Identity (Buddhism in America).
