Kenneth E. Brashier, PhD
Thomas Lamb Eliot Professor of Religion and Humanities, Emeritus @Reed College
K.E. Brashier received his BA from Oxford as a Rhodes scholar, his MA from Harvard, and his PhD from Cambridge, after which he taught Chinese religions (eventually as the Thomas Lamb Eliot Professor of Religion and Humanities) at Reed College from 1998 until his retirement in 2021. Author of Ancestral Memory in Early China (Harvard University Asia Center, 2011) and Public Memory in Early China (Harvard University Asia Center, 2014), et al, he is currently studying the idea of hell in late imperial China. In 2006, he was recognized as the national "Outstanding Baccalaureate Colleges Professor of the Year" by the CASE/Carnegie Foundation, but his chief goal in life remains a futile attempt to get his two cats to respect him.
