Topic for


Topic for Spring 2022: Forests and Human Flourishing
Religious traditions have employed trees and forests as an image of human flourishing. Several recent books have described the complex life of the forest and offered it as an entry point for thinking about perennial questions of human community. Readings will include Overstory by Richard Powers, The Song of Trees by David George Haskell, and The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben. Students will regularly visit a local nature reserve and develop a paper or creative project. Companion gateway course: RLST 205 Religion and the Biosphere.
