Graham Harvey

Graham Harvey is professor of religious studies at The Open University. His research largely concerns “the new animism,” especially in the rituals and protocols through which Indigenous and other communities engage with the larger-than-human world. These contribute to a focus on material- and lived-religion. His publications include Food, Sex and Strangers: Understanding Religion as Everyday Life (2013), and Animism: Respecting the Living World (2017). He is editor of the Equinox series “Religion and the Senses” and the Routledge series “Vitality of Indigenous Religions.”
