Justin K. H. Tse is Visiting Assistant Professor of Asian American Studies at Northwestern University, Evanston IL, USA. Previously, he taught at the University of Washington’s Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies in Seattle, WA, USA and human geography at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C., Canada. He became a Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada postdoctoral fellow at the University of Washington in 2014 after receiving his Ph.D. in Geography from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C., Canada. His research interests revolve around geographies of religion in the Pacific region. His work has appeared in Progress in Human Geography, Global Networks, and Population, Space, Place: A Journal of Population Geography.


The chapter discusses how geographers and religious studies scholars, despite their unawareness, have long worked closely when studying religion. By revisiting Mircea Eliade’s work on space and religion Justin Tse argues that the two fields have more in common than one might expect, and calls for an interdisciplinary study of ancient religions.
