The Department of Religious Studies Welcomes New Faculty Member Michael Allen

September 10, 2016

The Department of Religious Studies is pleased to welcome Professor Michael Allen to the faculty. He works on the intersections of philosophy and religious practice in South Asia, drawing on both Sanskrit and vernacular sources, with wider interests in Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain traditions. He explores ways in which South Asian perspectives, taken seriously on their own terms, can inform contemporary understandings of human beings and their place in the world.
