Richard Fox is Professor and Chair of Pacific and Asian Studies at the University of Victoria. He studies religion, media and performance in South and Southeast Asia, with a special emphasis on Indonesia and the wider Malay region. His work in Asia is driven by a broader interest in problems of ethics and the philosophy of the human sciences. Before coming to Victoria, Richard taught for six years at Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg in Germany, where he completed the Habilitation in Anthropology. He has also held research and teaching positions at the University of Chicago, Harvard University, Williams College and Universitas Udayana in Indonesia. Having conducted research on the island of Bali since the mid-1990s, he has recently begun a new project exploring how young Javanese and other Indonesians envisage and work toward a brighter future.
