Creighton’s Annual Women and Religion Lecture on April 14

Lisa Sideris, assistant professor and director of undergraduate studies in the Department of Religious Studies at Indiana University, will speak at Creighton University’s 2009 Women and Religion Lecture.

Sideris, whose research broadly focuses on the intersection of religion, science and environmental ethics, will talk on “Ethics, Empathy, and Wonder: Rachel Carson’s Environmental Legacy” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 14, at the Mike and Josie Harper Center ballroom, 602 N. 20 St. The event is free to the public.

Carson, who died in 1964, was a biologist, writer, and naturalist; many regard her as the mother of the environmental movement.

The lecture is sponsored by Creighton University’s Women and Gender Studies Program and the Kripke Center for the Study of Religion and Society.
