"Crossing Paths Between Religion and Ecology, Yale Divinity School, Summer Symposium, New Haven, CT"
A political science major and religion minor, Ashley is interested in the intersection of ecology and religion. She attended the Summer Symposium on Religion and Environmental Stewardship at the Yale Divinity School June 5-7, 2012. Workshops focused on greening religious spaces, preaching environmentalism, the study of eco-theology, climate change and environmental justice. By taking notes on presentations and engaging in conversation with presenters and attendees, Ashley gained experience with qualitative research and had the opportunity to network with religious leaders and environmental scholars.
