Upcoming events: Nature in Economics, Art, and Religion

Not that anyone planned this, but these three events speak to efforts to integrate nature and environment into other disciplines. Follow the links for more info.

HOW NATURE INTERSECTS WITH:

THE ECONOMY
This Thursday, Oct. 30, 6:30pm, Princeton biology professor Simon Levin will speak at DR Greenway's Johnson Education Center on "Opportunities in Environmental Stewardship: The Value of Ecosystem Services"

THE ARTS
Thursday, Nov. 13, 4:30 - 6 at Guyot Hall, Rm 10, the Princeton Environmental Institute presents: "What Arts are Good For"

THEOLOGY
Wednesday, Nov. 19, 8:30-4:30, in the Princeton Seminary Library, a symposium entitled "Evolutionary Science and Theological Identity"
The Seminary has an endowed professor of theology and science who recently retired. My grandfather was a chemistry professor who served as a minister at a church during the summer. This symposium might shed some light on recent thinking on how science influences religious identity.
