On November 1-3, 2002, CRLE and the Sustainability,
Humanities, and Environment Alliance of the Environmental Initiative
of the Associated Colleges of the South (ACS) sponsored a workshop
for scholars of religious studies on the subject of religion
and animals. The purpose of the workshop was threefold: (1)
to give scholars around the nation the opportunity to learn
about one another's research, (2) to give teachers of religious
studies an opportunity for sharing ways of teaching courses
dealing with religion and animals to college undergraduates,
and (3) to develop a national network of scholars interested
in religion and animals.
Planning for further workshops and an independent
website is underway.
to download an extensive bibliography on the subject, compiled
by Forrest Clingerman from the University of Iowa. (PDF)
