Theory and Method in the Integrative Study of Religion and Ecology
School of Consciousness and Transformation PAR 6078 3.00
Scholarship that crosses disciplinary boundaries requires a unique set of tools and strategies. This course is devoted to exploring theoretical and methodological lenses that allow rigorous, imaginative, and sympathetic engagement with interlocutors from the diverse fields represented in the Ecology, Spirituality, and Religion concentration. Following a historical and critical introduction to the fields of religion and ecology, we investigate a range of methodological approaches, and conclude with the application of these approaches to specific ecological case studies.
