Hans Tiefel Lecture 2021

Grounding environmental ethics in the theory and practice of applied environmental study was among the contributions of Aldo Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac. In the ensuing 50 years, North American understandings of what is “the environment” in Environmental Studies have expanded from concepts about nature and the tasks of integrated problem-solving to an unprecedented scale of crisis and topics like multispecies relations. Environmental ethics within this field have increasingly integrated approaches like those from the fields of comparative Religious Ethics to consider material and ecological realities, and also thereby to decenter post-Christian settler-colonial inheritances. As illustration, this virtual presentation shows how persistent issues about how to relate environmental law and ethics become legible through Muslim registers for environmental justice.
