The goal of the first Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts
National Research Conference, "Ecology, Theology, and Judeo-Christian
Environmental Ethics," to be held at the University of Notre Dame from
February 21-24, 2002, is to identify where ecology, history, philosophy,
theology intersect, and how that intersection might shape environmental
ethics. Participants will articulate how current conceptions of nature
each discipline confirm or alter conceptions from other disciplines.
example, ecologists often speak now of the "flux of nature" in
the older metaphor of "balance of nature." The conference will address
this shift in the scientific concept of nature should affect
theology and ethics.
Please see the conference website at www.nd.edu/~ecoltheo for a complete
conference description, a schedule of events, names of speakers, how to
papers, and information on honoraria and subsidies.
