Through a variety of lenses, including nature writing, pagan practices, studies of awe and wonder, indigenous and animistic perspectives, and the reflections of scientists and religion scholars, we will consider the variety of ways in which humans engage spiritually with nature and nonhumans.
Every so often in college you may take a class that deeply affects the way you see the world. We think that many of our courses fall into that category. When using religious studies as a lens, you can learn a great deal about many subjects, including human biology, health and evolution, food trade and sustainability, social networks and the arts, technology from the stone age to the information age, global cultures and indigenous heritage, social media and endangered languages, and international human rights.
