Prof. Jacob Erickson Awarded New Research Fellowship
Professor Jacob Erickson has been named a Fellow in the Panentheism and Religious Life project, a research collaboration between King’s College London and Johns Hopkins University. Sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation, the project awards ten non-residential fellowships to support new, original research exploring panentheism (where God is ‘in’ all and all is ‘in’ God) and issues of contemporary religious life. In conversation with current climate ethics, queer ecology, theories of ecological embodiment, and constructive theology, Erickson’s project asks how one might construct a ‘wild panentheism,’ where Divinity is unruly in and as the body of the earth itself. Such a project asks how that unruly Divine might lure forth new perspectives on climate justice and action.
