Description: 

This interdisciplinary and interreligious seminar is an in-depth exploration of key figures, methods, movements, and issues which have shaped and continue to shape debates on ecology across religious traditions. Starting with the historical and contemporary effects of colonization, the course engages a broad range of ecoethical questions in terms of social, political and planetary implications and how those intersect with the ethical concerns of specific religious traditions. Students will wrestle with pressing contemporary ecological concerns and work toward the articulation of their own ethics on questions related to the survival of the planet and humanity in light of their own religious tradition.
