Dr Graham Harvey has been Reader in Religious Studies at the Open University since 1993, and is also the President of the British Association for the Study of Religions. In addition to Animism, his work has covered a wide range of subjects, from Judaism, Paganism, Indigenous Religions and Shamanism. Current research interests: “First there is my ongoing interest in Indigenous rituals and performance cultures. For this I am involved in collaborative research and public engagement with Border Crossings, organisers of ORIGINS Festival of First Nations, a biennial arts festival in the UK – including participation in the journey of Totem Latamat (made by the Totonac multi-media artist Jun Tiburico in Mexico) across the UK to COP26 in Glasgow and to its final resting / retirement place at The Crichton in Dumfries. ​Secondly, I am beginning a project called “Prepare to meet your god(s)” which is about the practicalities of preparation for encounters with significant other-than-humans and/or with death.” Read a full bio here
