Global health and environmental ethics at UVA

Globaldygook“Making sense of the complex but exciting world of global health – and to demonstrate the academic overlap of public health across disciplines” is how students at the University of Virginia describe their blog, “Globaldygook.” The blog is (loosely) connected with the UVA Center for Global Health. One of the Center’s Faculty Fellows, Dr. Willis Jenkins, Associate Professor of Religion, Ethics, and Environment at UVA, focuses his research on interpreting the moral problems arising from changing human-environment systems, and especially in how religious traditions interpret and respond to those problems. Jenkins is author of Ecologies of Grace: Environmental Ethics and Christian Theology (Oxford 2008), which has been called “a luminous book [that] speaks not only to scholars of religion, students and ethicists, but also to policy makers, activists, clergy, and anyone concerned about the fate of the earth.” He is most recently author of The Future of Ethics: Sustainability, Social Justice, and Religious Creativity (Georgetown, 2013). Willis also continues to be involved with the UVA Project on Lived Theology.
