Kate Hartmann

Kate Hartmann is a scholar and educator focused on the history of Buddhism, especially in Tibet. Her research explores the history of Tibetan pilgrimage to holy mountains and the goal of transforming perception while on pilgrimage, and she is currently working on a book on this topic. She is also interested in Buddhist ethics, vision and visuality, theories of place, and issues of addiction and recovery. Her engagement with Religious Studies arises out of a longstanding interest in religion as a force that shapes our experience of the world, and in the practices religions develop to transform that experience. She conducts research in classical and modern Tibetan, Sanskrit, Chinese, and Hindi, and has done field work in various communities in Asia, including summers at a Buddhist nunnery in Ladakh, at the Tibetan Library of Works and Archives in Dharamsala, at Rangjung Yeshe Institute in Kathmandu, and at Sichuan University in Chengdu.
