A post from Lebanon Valley College's Religion and Philosophy Department where I teach as an adjunct instructor:
For the past year, the Department of Religion and Philosophy at LVC
has been privileged to have Dr. Leah Schade teaching for us. She is a
gifted and committed teacher, who is regularly teaching courses in
Ethics. Beginning next fall, she will offer a specialized course in
“Religion, Ecology and Gender” that builds on her academic
specialization in eco-theology and her ministry as an environmental
activist. The course probes the question about the different ways
religion has provided us with both positive and negative models for
conceptualizing embodiedness, sexuality, and relationality in terms of
both human and biotic communities. It will take an in-depth look at
ecological theology and ecofeminism in the effort to understand the
underlying causes of our current environmental crises.
The following is an excerpt from the April 2015 edition of The Lutheran magazine: http://www.thelutheran.org/article/article.cfm?article_id=12519%3Cbr%3E. It provides an excellent profile of Schade and her work.
