Introducing Our Field Editor

Brenton Sullivan is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Cultural Evolution of Religion Research Consortium and the Dept. of Asian Studies at the University of British Columbia. He is the Project Manager of the Database of Religious History (directed by Prof. Edward Slingerland). Apart from this, he works closely with Chinese and Tibetan historical documents in researching the evolution of large and complex religious institutions on the Tibetan Plateau. He also works with relational databases and other digital tools to foment cooperation and advances in research in Tibetan Studies and Religious Studies more generally. He values above all else being with his wife and son, and he frequently sermonizes to unsuspecting audiences on the importance of knowing and befriending one’s neighbors.
