Re-envisioning Ecotheology and the Divine from the Margins

Abstract


While concerns for the environment and concerns for oppression along the
lines of class, race, and gender have developed on different tracks, there
are an increasing number of proposals for bringing them together. Feminist
and liberation theologians have led the way. In the process, the various
perspectives have begun to reshape each other. At a time when ecological
concerns seem to become more and more ‘wedded to the dominant worldview’,
a perspective which re-envisions humanity, the divine, and ecology
from the margins might help to develop new horizons. The result is a more
constructive ecotheological perspective which will lead us beyond the
hegemonic tendencies of romantic or ‘purely factual’ views of the environment.
