Ecology & Religion in Nineteenth-Century Studies Conference

  • University of Washington (map)

I will be speaking on a roundtable panel at the Ecology & Religion in Nineteenth-Century Studies Conference held concurrently at Armstrong Browning Library at Baylor University (Texas), Lancaster University (UK), University of Washington (Seattle), and Georgetown University (Washington, D.C.). The conference takes place Sept 18-21 with my panel taking place at the University of Washington site at the time indicated here. More details and registration (free) is available here.

This flightless, multi-site, interdisciplinary conference explores the confluences between environmental and religious perspectives and practices in the long Anglophone nineteenth century (1780-1900). In response to the rapid acceleration of climate change since that century, this conference avoids air travel by digitally connecting events at several conference sites in the United States and in the United Kingdom. By lowering barriers of cost and transportation, this approach to networking promises to enable a more diverse and inclusive range of participation than is often possible at international conferences.
