Anne Mocko is a professor in the Religion Department at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. She has been traveling to Nepal since 2001, and has researched Nepal’s transition from Hindu monarchy to secular democracy. Her first book, based on this research, is entitled Demoting Vishnu, and will be released later this year by Oxford University Press.
In addition to issues of religion and politics, she is deeply invested in environmental issues. She is inspired by strategies for eco-living, and has recently been learning as much as possible about pollinators.
