Cuong Mai

I am a professor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at App State, with a research focus on the religions of China and Vietnam, specifically the history of Buddhism and the comparative history of the afterlife in world religions. I also teach courses on death, ritual, gender, sexuality, and religion. For more about my research and other courses you can visit my department website:
