Upcoming Conference

   October 31 - November 2, 2014

This conference aims to cultivate new ways of thinking about religion and the natural world, focusing on religion’s intersections with aspects of nature, from the environment, climate, flora and fauna, to human interactions with the natural, in the form of spirits, gods and goddesses, and miracles.  This conference will explore the relationships among ecosystems, religious practice, and religious thought with papers examining  how people experience religion in and through nature and reflect on the modes by which humans interact with the natural world in ritual practice, in religious text, and in theological inquiry.
