Reimagining Ways of Being: Religion and Spirituality in Ecological Activism

February 7th, 2020

What does it mean to practice or teach religion during a time of rapid societal and ecological change? How can practitioners of religion and the arts anticipate worlds to come - and remember those left behind?

This conference explored themes of imagination, lifeways, and activism in the context of religions and ecology. Presentations span a breadth of religious and spiritual traditions, addressing both textual and contemporary issues.

The conference included student presenters from Yale and beyond; a keynote by Dina Gilio-Whitaker, lecturer in American Indian Studies at California State University San Marcos; and a panel of local leaders in faith-based ecological engagement sharing about their work.
