Welcome to the Ecology & Religion in Nineteenth-Century Studies Conference!
The Ecology and Religion Conference is underway! The conference sessions are being broadcast on the Sessions section of this site. You can submit questions using either the Comments section of the website for the appropriate session or using Twitter with the conference hashtag: #EcoReligion19c.
This flightless, multi-site, interdisciplinary conference explores the confluences between environmental and religious perspectives and practices in the long Anglophone nineteenth century (1780-1900). In response to the rapid acceleration of climate change since that century, this conference avoids air travel by digitally connecting events at several conference sites in the United States and in the United Kingdom. By lowering barriers of cost and transportation, this approach to networking promises to enable a more diverse and inclusive range of participation than is often possible at international conferences.
The four-day conference features over 70 presenters including
