Paul-François Tremlett joined the Religious Studies department at the Open University in 2010 and is now a Senior Lecturer in Religious Studies. He earned his Ph.D. from the School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London). For his doctorate, Tremlett conducted ethnographic research in the Philippines around the extinct volcano Mount Banahaw, a place popularly associated with healing, magic, and "Rizalism". He is interested in theory and method in Religious Studies, and, as well as ethnographic research in the Philippines, he has conducted research in Hong Kong and London on the Occupy movement. Tremlett is currently using online qualitative methods to explore transnational activism in relation to Filipino human rights organisations. Tremlett's teaching is interdisciplinary, drawing in particular from anthropology, history, and sociology. His research and teaching interests are aligned with the Open University's commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion and to the Religious Studies department's commitment to knowledge exchange with schools and colleges to promote critical religious literacy. Tremlett is on the editorial board of three, international peer-reviewed journals: Culture and Religion, Implicit Religion and Critical Research on Religion and is a member of the British Association of the Study of Religions, SOCREL and the Royal Anthropological Institute. He is also a member of the Campaign for Human Rights in the Philippines (CHRP-UK).
