On November 24, 2001, The North West Arkansas Times featured an article on the research conducted by a Pluralism Project student affiliate that mapped religious centers in Arkansas. The article reported that Barbee compiled profiles of Buddhist and Islamic centers in Arkansas, including Wat Buddhasamakeedham, a Thai Buddhist temple, the Islamic Center of Northwest Arkansas, and the Ecumenical Buddhist Society of Little Rock. Eric Barbee, a student at the Divinity School of Harvard, is working on a master's in theological studies. His work, titled "Mapping the Religious Diversity of Arkansas", can be viewed on the Pluralism Project website.
