Cambridge Interfaith Programme

 

Correction:* In session three, the Religion and Ecology reading group will discuss Julie Cruickshank’s Do glaciers listen?: local knowledge, colonial encounters, and social imagination (University of Chicago Press, 2005).

A new classic, Cruikshank’s text invites us to consider the entangled histories, practices, and knowledges in which landscapes and their inhabitants are caught up and the consequences of those entanglements for contemporary discussions about climate change, conservation, and heritage. 

Accessing the reading

Members of the University of Cambridge can access the book via iDiscover.

The eBook edition is available to purchase (from 17.99 GBP), and the opening passages may be sampled for free via most eReaders.

Planning ahead?

At session four (May, date tbc), the reading will be Anne Rademacher’s Reigning the River: Urban Ecologies and Political Transformation in Kathmandu (Duke University Press, 2011).

A powerful story about the multiple actors, visions, and possibilities for action entangled around an exposed riverbed in Nepal, Rademacher’s text invites us to consider the ways in which the political and ecological are always already mutually implicated.

Accessing the reading for session four

Members of the University of Cambridge can access the book via iDiscover. Paperback and eBook editions are available to purchase (from 15.99 GBP), and the opening passages may be sampled for free via most eReaders.
