In the Facing the Anthropocene webinar series, Duke Divinity School Professor Norman Wirzba interviews leading scholars in political economy, history, anthropology, theology, philosophy, environmental humanities, and law, in order to examine the conditions under which a hopeful future might be imagined.

In this webinar of the series, Wirzba interviews Willis Jenkins, who lives in the Rivanna River watershed where he works as a professor of Religious Studies at the University of Virginia. He is the author of two award-winning books, Ecologies of Grace, which won a Templeton Award for Theological Promise, and The Future of Ethics, which won an American Academy of Religion Award for Excellence. At UVA, Jenkins co-directs several environmental humanities initiatives, including the Coastal Futures Conservatory and Sanctuary Lab.

Wirzba is the Gilbert T. Rowe Distinguished Professor of Christian Theology at Duke Divinity and a senior fellow at Duke University's Kenan Institute for Ethics, which is sponsoring the webinar series.

Registration information to be announced.
