From his biography at the Harvard Divinity school we read that Dr. David Little has been on the faculty at Harvard since 1999. Before that, he was senior scholar in religion, ethics, and human rights at the United States Institute of Peace in Washington, D.C. One of his major responsibilities in that capacity was to direct the institute's Working Group on Religion, Ideology, and Peace, which conducted a study of religion, nationalism, and intolerance, with special reference to the United Nations Declaration on the Elimination of Intolerance and Discrimination.
From 1996 to 1998, he was a member of the U.S. State Department Advisory Committee on Religious Freedom Abroad. He taught previously at Yale Divinity School, Virginia, Brown, and several other colleges and universities.
