Hello Green Seminarians and Friends,
In a move that will dramatically strengthen our ability to support seminaries’ environmental leadership, the Green Seminary Initiative has officially become a program of GreenFaith and Drew Theological School. The press release announcing this is below.
The first project we’re embarking on is the development of a seminary environmental certification program. You’ll also find a request for proposals attached for consultants interested in work related to this.
It’s an exciting time for GSI – we look forward to keeping you posted.

Divinanimality: Animal Theory, Creaturely Theology
Edited by Stephen Moore
Forward by Laurel Kearns
A turn to the animal is underway in the humanities, most obviously in such fields as philosophy, literary studies, cultural studies, and religious studies. One important catalyst for this development has been the remarkable body of animal theory issuing from such thinkers as Jacques Derrida and Donna Haraway. What might the resulting interdisciplinary field, commonly termed animality studies, mean for theology, biblical studies, and other cognate disciplines? Is it possible to move from animal theory to creaturely theology?
