Ecology and Religion in Nineteenth-Century Studies

 

This flightless, multi-site conference (Sept. 18-21, 2019) invites interdisciplinary attention to  confluences between environmental and religious perspectives and practices in the long Anglophone nineteenth century (1780-1900).  Since that century, anthropogenic climate change has rapidly accelerated, and in response to this legacy we will avoid air travel by digitally connecting events at several conference sites in the United States and the United Kingdom.  In addition, this method of networking, by lowering barriers of cost and transportation, promises to enable a more diverse and inclusive range of participation than is often possible at international conferences.  Events will take place at several digitally linked conference sites:

 

Armstrong Browning Library at Baylor University (Texas)

Lancaster University (UK)

University of Washington (Seattle)

Georgetown University (Washington, D.C.)

 

The Call for Papers and related information is available on the conference site: sites.baylor.edu/library/ecologyreligion.  Please visit the site to submit a proposal for a paper or a panel session.
