[HDS 2798: Introduction to Religion and Ecology]

This course will explore the intersection between religious traditions and ecological activism, with special attention to current conversations about "ethical eating." We will consider both the resources that religious traditions provide to ecological activists and the ways these activists have challenges aspects of traditional religion. The course will also function as a general introduction to the multiple ways of knowing that comprise the scholarly study of religion, with attention to scriptural interpretation, history, ethnography, theology, ethics, and comparative studies.

Note: Likely offered Spring 2020. Offered jointly with the Faculty of Arts and Sciences as Religion 1046.
