DISC Lecture. Religion, Ethics, and Climate Change
Jonathan Brockopp, associate professor of history and religion at Penn State University, specializes in the literary remains of early Islamic cultures, including the Qur’an, hadith, legal and theological texts. In his most upcoming book, "Muhammad’s Heirs: the Rise of Muslim Scholarly Communities," he focuses on the question of how early Islamic scholars construct their notion of religious authority. Professor Brockopp is the convener for the Penn State Society for the Study of Religion and the director of the Rock Ethics Institute Initiative in Religion and Ethics.
