This course explores these two movements in eco-theology. The course engages Catholic (magisterial, liberationist and feminist); Protestant; and Eastern Orthodox traditions, as well as several attempts to reconstruct Christian theology all together. Attention will further be given to the new cosmology or epic of evolution that is rooted in the important work of Thomas Berry, Brian Swimme. Yet because climate change disproportionally affects communities in the global South and marginilized communities in the North, the course attends specifically to theologies and perspectives that come from outside the (mainstream) North-Atlantic context. Throughout the course issues of race, gender and class are foregrounded, most notably by listening to eco-feminist/eco-womanist/mujerista eco-theologies.
