Coordinator, Asian Studies Program

Dr. Phyllis K. Herman is a professor of Religious Studies at CSUN. A native Californian, she attended UCLA and attained her Ph.D. in the History of Religion. Her areas of concentration are South Asian religious traditions and women and religion.

She is co-editor of the book The Constant and Changing Face of the Goddess: Goddess Traditions in Asia. She has contributed chapters to several notable books and articles to many peer-reviewed journals on women and religion, Hindu ideas of kingship, nationalist and feminist theories, goddesses, Islam in India and has concentrated especially on the roles of food in ancient and modern women’s rituals. Her latest publication is in the Heidelberg Journal of Religions on the Internet and she is hoping to continue this new area of research into online worship in both India and in the South Asian Diaspora.
