Aimee L. Hamilton teaches courses in South Asian religions, and religions and bodily practice. Her area of specialization is in Hinduism and South Asian traditions, focusing on comparative religion and the anthropological study of religion. Her research focuses in the areas of identity and representation, life cycle rituals, and bodily adornment. She is interested in the realm of the human body as the space that both marks and reflects individual and social relationships and that intersects with religious reality. She has also taught at DePauw University and Butler University.
