Interaction Rescaled: How Monastic Debate Became a Diasporic Pedagogy
Lempert, Michael
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v43 n2 p138-156 Jun 2012
Rather than assume the relevance of "a priori" scalar distinctions (micro-, macro-, meso-), this article examines scale as an emergent dimension of sociospatial practice in educational institutions. Focusing on Buddhist debate at Tibetan monasteries in India, I describe how this educational practice has been placed as a rite of institution within the perimeter of Sera Monastery in India and rescaled into a more expansive diasporic pedagogy by reformers like the Dalai Lama.
