John Stratton Hawley—more informally, Jack—is Professor of Religion at Barnard College, Columbia University.  He has written or edited sixteen books; three more are forthcoming.  Many of these concern the religious traditions of north India (most recently, The Memory of Love: Surdas Sings to Krishna), but the edited volumes range more widely (e.g., Holy Tears:  Weeping in the Religious Imagination, with Kimberley Patton).  Jack Hawley has served as director of Columbia University’s South Asia Institute and has received multiple awards from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Institute of Indian Studies.  He has been a Guggenheim Fellow and was recently elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
