The earth must be the ground zero of our thinking and practice. In this course, we learn about the ways our world is organized around a capitalistic system called extractivism. Extractivism is the ongoing work of coloniality, the ripping off of all natural and human resources, exterminating life on earth. This system organizes the political, theological, economic and emotional resources of the anthropocene. We also learn how to respond to this way of being by creating rituals and liturgies based on readings, discussions and site visits.
