Description   This course addresses an unprecedented moral
challenge facing humankind today. In the context
of ways of living that threaten Earth's
life-generating capacities, the moral challenge
is to forge regenerative Earth-human relations
while also building social justice between and
among societies. The course engages that
challenge through the lens of Christian ethics.
The complex intertwining of climate change with
social injustice - in particular racism and
economic injustice - on local and global scales
will be a central focus. Methodological resources
include liberation ethics, Earth ethics,
eco-feminist perspectives, and eco-hermeneutics.
The informing undercurrent of the course is the
quest for hope and moral-spiritual agency in the
face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
Course format is primarily discussion and
interactive lecture. Assignments include a paper,
essay exam, peer-teaching, and occasional short
written assignments.
