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.
