Sarah McFarland Taylor, Ph.D., will deliver the Annual Women and Religion lecture titled, “Green Sisters: Women Religious, Earth Justice, and Spiritual Ecology.” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 18 in the Mike and Josie Harper Center ballroom.

The lecture is free to the public.

Taylor is an associate professor of religious studies at Northwestern University, specializing in the study of religion and American culture, religion and ecology, and women’s studies in religion. She is the author of “Green Sisters: A Spiritual Ecology,” which was named by the Catholic Press Association as the best book on gender issues and the best book on social concerns. She has also published numerous articles on topics related to the “greening” of American religion.

Currently, Taylor is under contract on her second book that will focus on the religious dimensions of the “green burial movement”, which promotes environmentally sound ways to recycle human remains.
