Ecology at the American Academy of Religion 2020 Meeting

Sam Mickey


This week's episode of Spotlights is all about the annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion (AAR), which is taking place virtually this year from November 30 to December 10. Our host (Sam Mickey) discusses the importance of the AAR for scholars of theology and religion, with specific attention to the AAR groups that focus on issues related to ecology, including the Religion and Ecology group as well as groups on Animals and Religion, Religion and Food, and Space, Place, and Religion.

Spotlights will be back with reports on the event in our next couple of episodes. In the meantime, you can watch the video of this episode below or listen to it HERE.

A searchable version of the Program Book for this year’s AAR meeting can be found HERE.
