Muslim Enviromentalisms: Religious and Social Foundations
February 6, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
Presented by the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies
Learn how our understandings of environmentalism and the environmental humanities could shift if we incorporate Islamic perspectives.
In her recent book, Muslim Environmentalisms: Religious and Social Foundations, Dr. Anna M. Gade explores the religious and cultural foundations of Islamic environmentalisms. She blends textual and ethnographic study to offer a comprehensive and interdisciplinary account of the legal, ethical, social, and empirical principles underlying Muslim commitments to the earth. Professor Gade will give remarks about her book and answer questions.
Coffee and bagels will be provided
