Resource Mapping

About This Guide

The purpose of this guide is to direct you to the best books, journals, online and print resources that discuss the intersection between religion and the environment. The guide is broken down into relevant subject areas that will provide you with search terms available through Orbis (Yale's online catalog) and Quicksearch. In addition to academic reference books, The Ministry Resource Center at Yale Divinity School provides pastors and church members with relevant materials to integrate the environment into their ministry. For more information on Religion and the Environment resources at MRC, check the "For Ministry" page on this guide, or send an email to ministry.resource.center@yale.edu.

Have questions? Want to discuss your research objectives and search strategies? You're welcome to contact me or your Personal Librarian, or email your questions to divinity.library@yale.edu.

Yale Environmental Humanities Initiative

We are pleased to announce the launch of a Yale Environmental Humanities Initiative at the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. This Initiative will serve as a locus for environmental humanities coursework, research, and events. This includes courses in the social sciences that focus on the human dimensions of environmental studies.

In the past decade, there has been a surge in environmental humanities curricula, programs, centers, and colloquia in the North America, Europe, and Australia. Yale has a unique opportunity to contribute to this emerging field. By drawing together the strengths of F&ES and YDS with those of Yale’s esteemed humanities departments, we hope to nurture student interest in environmental humanities. The website will serve as a clearinghouse for information on relevant courses and faculty, resources, and links to upcoming events
