My name is Paul Fuller. I have a PhD in Buddhist Studies from the University of Bristol. I have taught Religious Studies at Universities in Southeast Asia, the University of Sydney in Australia and at Bath Spa University in the UK. I am currently lecturing in Buddhist Studies at the University of Cardiff. My research interests include early Indian Buddhist philosophy, the Buddhist ideas of Aung San Suu Kyi and the prevalence of blasphemy in Buddhist culture.
My book, The Notion of Ditthi in Theravada Buddhism: The Point of View (RoutledgeCurzon Critical Studies in Buddhism, 2004) explores the textual basis of discrimination and attachment in the Pali Canon. At present I am researching aspects of what I have termed ‘ethnocentric Buddhism’, particularly in the Burmese and Sri Lankan Buddhist contexts.
