DAVID L. HABERMAN, Indiana University
Professor of religious studies at Indiana and recipient of the Trustees Teaching Award, David Haberman specializes in Hinduism and has spent many years conducting ethnographic and textual research in India. Much of his work, supported by Guggenheim, Fulbright, and ACLS fellowships, is centered on the culture of Braj, an active pilgrimage site in northern India long associated with Krishna. His publications include Acting as a Way of Salvation: A Study of Raganuga Bhakti Sadhana; Journey Through the Twelve Forests: An Encounter with Krishna (recipient, American Academy of Religion Award for Excellence); River of Love in an Age of Pollution: The Yamuna River of Northern India; and People Trees: Worship of Trees in Northern India. His current research involves the relationship of religion, ecology, and nature, with a focus on Hindu attitudes and practices.
