Biography

Akshay Gupta holds a Master's Degree in Religious Studies from Duke University. He began his Ph.D in 2019. His dissertation aims to rationally reconstruct the theodicy (a response to the problem of evil) of the Caitanya Vaishnava theologian A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. He is also interested in exploring how Hindu theological motifs can be drawn on as conceptual resources for improving societal conditions.
