Hi, I’m Ben Van Overmeire. Currently, I’m Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Duke Kunshan University. I’m working on a book on how modern autobiographical narratives of Zen life incorporate koan, medieval Zen riddles such as “What is the sound of one hand clapping?” or “What was your name before you were born?” My work has appeared in Religions, Contemporary Buddhism, The Journal of the Buddhist-Christian Studies Society, The Journal of Popular Culture and other publications.
