Religious Studies major Taylor is traveling abroad in Istanbul this semester. Get a first person account of what it is like to live, eat, study, and travel in Turkey on Taylor's very own blog.
The environment – whether understood as simply the planet or as the entire cosmos – has been understood, described, defined, interpreted, and impacted through religious thought and practice and through philosophical discourse. At the current historical moment, in the face of climate change and ecological efforts, scholars are re-evaluating these humanistic understandings of the environment.
Faculty and graduate students are invited to join us for a brown bag lunch, aimed at sharing our work and organizing a faculty seminar or other forum for on-going interdisciplinary discussions. We invite scholars from across the University to participate.
Bring your lunch. Beverages will be provided.
