Dr. Tillman is a historian and professor at Arizona State University (ASU) who has been teaching Chinese cultural history on campus since 1976.

Dr. Tillman's primary research group at ASU is currently focusing on "China's Daos Today." Led by Stephen Bokenkamp, it explores the revival of Confucianism, Daoism and Buddhism in contemporary China.
Focusing his years of study on exploring Chinese ways of thinking, Dr. Tillman has been analyzing how Chinese, over the centuries, have continued to remake their traditions and identity in response to contemporary problems and in dialogue with ancient wisdom. During his tenure, he has been able to create an historical account of greater intellectual and cultural diversity in the 11th through 13th centuries of Chinese Confucian philosophy, demonstrate the relevance of cultural diversity and the value of less studied thinkers from the Chinese past to our contemporary world, and has served as an individual bridge for enhancing the cultural understanding between China and the West.

Dr. Tillman has served on various educational committees as well, including the external review committee of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ. He has also served as a grant reviewer for several organizations, including the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), was a member and John K. Fairbank Prize committee member of the American Historical Association, and is a longtime member of the Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy and the Association for Asian Studies.
Dr. Tillman has published extensively in his area of expertise as a result of his research, including publications in English, Chinese and Korean that highlight diversity within Chinese culture. To date, in addition to publishing nine of his own books and editing or co-editing six others, he has authored more than 150 articles in scholarly journals, as well as chapters to several books. His research has been supported by the Fulbright Foundation, the ACLS and the NEH, among other organizations. In 2000, he was recognized with an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Senior Research Prize (Humboldt-Forschungspreis). It was the first time that the German Foundation bestowed the prize to someone in Chinese Studies.
Honored with multiple awards and recognitions for his work, Dr. Tillman was recently the recipient of a National Library's Center for Chinese Studies fellowship in 2018, a U.S. Department of Education Fulbright-Hays Faculty Research Abroad in 2010, and a Comparative and International Education Society Award from the J.
