Hinduism

Editor in Chief | Area Editors | Articles and Contributors

 

As one of the world’s largest religions, Hinduism has become an increasingly important area of study today. Hinduism is related to all the major continuing and connected religions of India. About 80 per cent of India’s massive population regard themselves as Hindu, and there are approximately 30 million Hindus outside of India. The study of Hinduism is diverse—it combines religion, philosophy, history, and textual studies, as well as informing a variety of comparative studies. Because the field comprises so many varied aspects, research and scholarship is wide-reaching in its response to different interpretations. Much of this work has moved online so that students and researchers have ready access to key primary source texts and a range of other electronic resources. Rather than sifting through these ever-expanding mountains of information that may or may not yield relevant results, students and researchers alike can rely on Oxford Bibliographies in Hinduism to offer a reliable, up-to-date, and authoritative guide to the best literature in the field.

 

Editor in Chief

Tracy Coleman is David Packard Professor and Chair in the Department of Religion at Colorado College in Colorado Springs, where she has taught since 2001. She holds a PhD in Religious Studies from Brown University, an MTS from Harvard Divinity School, and an MA in French from Middlebury College. She is a scholar of Hinduism and its traditions of bhakti, especially Krishna-bhakti in the Sanskrit epics and purāṇas, and her teaching and research address issues of women, men, and gender in religion and society. She has published articles in these fields, and also on dharma traditions in Hinduism and Buddhism, exploring the genre of sacred biography wherein competing conceptions of dharma are linked to heroic male figures such as Krishna and the Buddha who represent embodiments of truth and authority in socio-religious life.
