Nepal is familiar territory for Prof. Megan Adamson Sijapati, who teaches courses on Islam, Hinduism and religious traditions of South Asia, religious conflict and cooperation, and religions in modernity.
She first traveled to Nepal in 1994 and has lived there several times, including in 2005-2006 as Fulbright Hays scholar and most recently in 2009-10.
