This course is part of Union's new Insight Project and covers various topics over five years. This year’s theme is “Theology and the Natural World” and focuses on theology and ecology. Specifically, this course explores cutting edge work on how nature itself is being reimagined across a range of fields: science studies, anthropology, ecology, literature and theology. How has anthropogenic climate change transformed what we take nature to be? How can and must we reimagine "nature" itself and nature's relationship to "culture” in the anthropocene? What are the implications of this reimagination for how we study theology?
