The University of Toledo is expanding its annual interfaith lecture series to include a talk on Eastern religion, scheduled for Wednesday night.

The first lecture of 2009 will be given by Ashley Pryor, associate professor of women's and gender studies at UT, titled "Sakyadhita: Women and Engaged Buddha."

Ms. Pryor said in an interview this week that she plans to cover a range of issues on Buddhism, including the re-establishment of the religion in Mongolia and the role of women in Buddhist tradition.
