Lecture: Religion and Environmental Ethics

Thursday, March 10, 2016 - 6:00pm
Zurn 114

The Evelyn Lincoln Institute for Ethics and Society presents Professor Lisa Sideris, an environmental ethicist at Indiana University, to speak on the role of religion in the ethics of climate change. Some climate change activists have claimed that we need a new kind of religion in order to solve our earth's problems. Dr. Sideris will ask “can a science-based religion save the earth?"  Professor Sideris' work has challenged religious studies scholars to think critically about environmental ethics and her 2003 book Environmental Ethics, Ecological Theology, and Natural Selection has become a classic in the field. The lecture will be held on Thursday, March 10, at 6 p.m. in Zurn 114. It is free and open to the public.
