Some of our Divinity School professors weigh in on summer reading choices.
– Alireza Doostdar, Assistant Professor of Islamic Studies and the Anthropology of Religion
Sarah Fredericks, Assistant Professor of Environmental Ethics, writes that "As an environmental ethicist I spend a lot of time thinking about climate change which can be a rather depressing subject. Thus, Kevin O'Brien's The Violence of Climate Change: Lessons from Nonviolent Resistance Activists was a welcome change. It looks to historical social justice activists for models of action and temperment that could be useful in mitigating and adapting to climate change. I also recommend Blind Descent by James M. Tabor, a book about the search for the world's deepest cave, if you, like me, enjoy books that mix adventurous exploration and scientific discovery."
