Developments in Religion and Ecology
MetadataVis full innførsel
Given the still very open context of studies in religion and the environment this chapter focuses on selected novel developments. Religion is understood as offering substantial cultural skills, and besides its meaning making, ritualizing, mapping and tracing, I emphasize the skill of religion to “make-oneself-at-home.” Climate change, technology, and space/place represent three specifically challenging discourses to which scholars have creatively contributed. The chapter further discusses the emergence of the so-called environmental humanities and underlines the creativity and diversity of methodological experiments in the study of religion and ecology.
