The richness and diversity of contemporary environmental philosophy remains largely absent from the everyday dis- course and decision-making processes of
environmental governance. One reason for this is a sincere difficulty in translating the less tangible and measurable aspects of our environmental relationships into community practices and governing policies. More difficult still, the mechanisms of environmental decision-making have been historically structured
under the influence of latent environmental philosophies that are neither neutral nor equally welcoming to all considerations. The best plans too often produce the same impoverished results.

THIS SYMPOSIUM seeks to envision a richer and more inclusive environmental governance, proposing specific steps for how environmental philosophy can better engage current governance practices.

Oct 8 @ 7:30 pm

Mystical Phenomena in Modern Catholicism: An Illustrated Talk
with Prof. Paula Kane, Endowed Chair of Contemporary Catholic Studies

Thursday, October 8th, 7:30pm

Among the more unusual elements of Catholic mysticism is the tradition of stigmata, chosen persons who are marked supernaturally with the wounds of the crucified Christ. The lecture will address the case of an American stigmatic of the early twentieth century and the political uses made of such events for a Catholic population trying to adapt to American society.
