Climate Change as a Consequence of Human Presence: A Dialogue between Anthropology and Biblical Studies

Thursday, April 6, 5:30-7:00 p.m.

Carol A. Newsom, C. H. Candler Professor of Old Testament/Hebrew Bible, Candler School of Theology, Emory University

Heights Room, Corcoran Commons, Chestnut Hill Campus

Scientific anthropology and the anthropological reflections found in biblical texts present a picture of the human species that gives us insight into how and why our unique nature not only poses a danger but holds promise for the ecology of our fragile world. This conversation between religion and science can encourage the sharing of mutual insights, and perhaps build a template for action and for hope.
