If we are to develop, and then operationally deploy systems for civil defense in the age of climate change, then we need to take a long range view of how climate change will affect many generations that will follow us. A basic system that is workable now and can be added on to later as the technology and understanding about climate change develops is needed. At the same…

Hanna E. Morris is a Ph.D Candidate at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. She is an interdisciplinary scholar of media, culture, and the climate crisis. Her research deciphers the historical roots of contemporary climate discourse and images and determines how these representations shape responses to the threats of climate change. She is motivated by questions of power, representation, and environmental justice.

My research focuses on climate change and human dispersals in the past and how they may have impacted human technical behaviours. In particular it focuses on eastern Africa, north-eastern Africa and the Levant during the last 50,000 years. It aims to highlight patterns of change or persistence in the archaeological record, and what it may mean in terms of human adaptation to a changing environment or contacts or isolations of populations.

MemberForrest Clingerman

I am in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Ohio Northern University, in Ada, Ohio, USA.  I completed my dissertation in Modern Religious Thought at the University of Iowa in 2005. My teaching and research are both grounded in the study of historical sources as well as contemporary critical voices. My theological, ethical and philosophical work draws deeply from philosophical hermeneutics–particularly Paul Ricoeur–and religious thought, including the work of Paul Tillich.  At the same time, my work resonates with earlier figures from Bonaventure and Anselm to Schleiermacher and Hegel. Currently I am working in two areas of research.  A large portion of my work centers on the issue of place in environmental thought. I have investigated how place (and even more, our emplacement, to echo Ricoeur’s view of emplotment) as a helpful point of orientation for theology, ethics, and philosophy.  To understand place in this way is to approach nature hermeneutically.  A “hermeneutics of place” seeks to understand how we interpret the built and natural surroundings, finding meaning in our location.  This does not simply allow us a framework for understanding natural and built environments, it also suggests a sense of self and community.  Because of the temporal dimensions of place, I have recently worked on the issue of memory, imagination, and place.  A hermeneutics of place has ethical and theological dimensions, especially when we attempt to uncover the depth dimension of our emplacement in the world. As I conceive it, a hermeneutical approach to the environment has implications for public policy and ethics.  Nowhere is this more apparent than in the topic of climate change and religion.  I have become involved in exploring theological responses to climate change.  In particular, I have researched theological responses to climate engineering (otherwise known as geoengineering, or the large scale manipulation of the climate as an attempt to mitigate anthropogenic climate change—and the ongoing crisis of anthropogenic climate change).  The recent surge in interest in climate engineering is related to the question of whether the planet has entered the Anthropocene, which is not simply a scientific but also a hermeneutical concept for understanding the human relationship with the Earth. A second area of research is the interconnection of religion, hermeneutics, and culture. This includes not only the visual arts, literature, and classical music, but also popular culture–television, film, etc.  Works of art and literature provide us with dialogue partners for understanding the richness and depth of human experience.  Not only does this engage environmental aesthetics and ethics, but it allows us to contribute to theological discussions of the meaning of being human.  Theological thinking oftentimes is thinking alongside works of culture, even in the cases that are on the surface identified with the more-than-human world. While these two questions might appear separate, I am intrigued at the points of connection.  In both cases, the question is this: philosophically, what is our relationship with the world in which we live?  In the case of spiritual communities, we can further ask: how has religion exposed the depth of such a relationship?  Such questions are not simply intellectually interesting, but have real significance for the public sphere.  Thus I hope my scholarship and teaching clarifies these issues, and leads to deeper way of living in the world.

I’m an educator, curriculum designer, and PhD student at the Department of Integrated Studies in Education at McGill University. I also served as Director of Curriculum at Global Citizenship Experience (GCE) Lab School in Chicago. My research is in education for global citizenship, sustainable development, and climate change. I’m particularly interested in how the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can be used to help define 21st-century learning.

Hello and good day, My name is Dr. Julia Mattes M.A. I am a researcher in prehistoric archaeology (and occasionally in art history). Due to a broad education and a liking for ‘thinking outside the box’ I enjoy to work in different fields of academia and have a wide-ranging expertise. I am a member of the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History, Uppsala University as well as an independent scholar and holder of a number of grants. So far I mainly worked with European prehistoric cult and religion, ancient diseases, climate change, ancient art and art history.

I’m a PhD candidate at Stony Brook University studying borders, bodies, violence, and war in contemporary US literature. I’m interested in the intersection of challenges and ideas that we tend to view as totalizing, all-encompassing, or comprehensive, such as perpetual war, climate change, and nationalism. In my research, I explore imaginative spaces and imagery that highlights the intersections of these types of problems in hopes of finding ways to describe and understand their vulnerabilities. My in-progress dissertation is titled “Possibly Everywhere but Hopefully Not Forever: Reading the War on Terror in US Literature from the Post-9/11 Era.”   In addition to my literary research, I am also deeply concerned with the ethics, theory, and practicalities of education. As a young Latina instructor, I strive to create learning spaces where my students and I are seen, heard, and challenged.    Because reading is no longer a “pastime” for me, I like to spend my free time doing anything that makes me laugh and playing more Stardew Valley than I care to admit. One of my major life-goals is to move to the beach.
