Loving Stones, with David Haberman

Sam Mickey

This week's episode of Spotlights is the second part of a two-part interview with David Haberman, PhD, Professor and former Chair in the Department of Religious Studies at Indiana University Bloomington. Last week, we talked about his work with religion and climate change. This week, we discuss his research into the worship of stones, rivers, and trees in northern India, with particular attention to his book Loving Stones: Making the Impossible Possible in the Worship of Mount Govardhan (Oxford University Press, 2020).

More information about Hinduism and ecology is available on the Forum and Ecology website here.
