Hosted at Yale University, the Graduate Conference in Religion and Ecology reflects a desire to provide a space for students to engage in dynamic, interdisciplinary conversations across curricular boundaries, and strives to connect ethos with ethics, and ethics to applicable practicality.

Edited Volume, Cinema Liberation Theology
I am looking for 7-10 additional 4,000-5,000 word chapters on cinema and liberation theology for an edited collection which a major academic publisher is interested in.
This collection focuses on liberation narratives which are in some way related to or inspired by religious traditions/literatures/practices/discourses from around the world. The films and analyses need not be explicitly religious in content, but need only to be argued in the context of liberation with theology, spirituality, or divinity functioning as a loose guide.
