Interdisciplinary Studies at the Green Institute
We live in a very complex world. Often the only way to approach the challenge of such a world is through the understanding that comes from and through interdisciplinary analysis. For this reason, the Green Institute formed the nucleus of an Initiative in Interdisciplinary Studies. The Initiative broadly dealt with issues of religion, ecology, and governance/politics from a Green perspective of Green. Green philosophy is an integrated and coherent world view that transcends a narrow sense of politics to encompass community, society, and culture. It is the intent of the Green Institute that its Fellows interact with other scholars and organizations working on similar issues.
The Institute also established a Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Studies and awarded the Fellowship to Tom Baugh. Tom has previously served as the Green Institute’s Science Fellow. In addition to 30 years experience in science information, natural resource management, and conservation biology with two federal agencies and one university, Tom is a multidisciplinary professional with graduate education and degrees in biology/ecology and religion/theology. He is a member of the American Institute of Biological Sciences, the Society for Conservation Biology, the American Academy of Religion, the Forum on Religion and Ecology, the Society for the Study of Religion, Nature, and Culture and the World Conservation Union (IUCN). Tom moved on to other projects at the end of 2008 so this project is no longer active.
