Johan Elverskog is the Chair of Religious Studies and Professor of History at Southern Methodist University.
His research falls into five main areas:
- Sino-Inner Asian history during the Ming-Qing period (1368-1912).
- The history of Buddhism among the Turks and Mongols.
- Inter-Asian cross-cultural exchange and interaction.
- Environmental history.
- An effort to bring the fruits of scholarship on Inner Asian history to a larger audience, especially to scholars and students in other disciplines. The first of these projects is Sources of Mongolian Tradition, which Elverskog is co-editing with Christopher P. Atwood, and will be published in the Introduction to Asian Civilizations Series of Columbia University Press.
