Religion and Ethics
The workshop provides a venue to explore the intersections of religion and the modern day ethical domains (bio-ethics, environmental ethics, social/political ethics, etc.), as well as historical engagement with thinkers whose work has influenced our understanding of the relationship between ethics and religion. The nature of the workshop is interdisciplinary, bringing into conversation perspectives from within specific religious traditions and other fields of study, such as medicine, the social sciences and humanities. Our meetings consist of papers being given by regular participants, dissertation chapters, faculty presentations, visiting guest speakers, professional development panels, and periodic conferences. Participants include students and faculty within the Divinity School as well as those in related disciplines with interests in religion and ethics.
