About the Author
Peter Gottschalk is Professor of Religion at Wesleyan University. He received his B.A. in History at the College of the Holy Cross, his M.A. in South Asian Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his Ph.D. in the History of Religions from the University of Chicago. Peter's research and teaching concentrate on the dynamics of cultural interpretation and conflict in the context of Islam, Hinduism, and the West. He is interested particularly in understanding how assumptions of mutual antagonism form between groups despite evidence of religious confluence. Peter enjoys presenting on these topics and has discussed them in the U.S., India, Bangladesh, and Europe at colleges and universities, professional conferences, public events, and religious communities. He has appeared on CNN, Air America, Voice of America, and National Public Radio, while his work has been mentioned in USA Today, The New York Times, and the On Faith website of The Washington Post.
