In Climate Change and the Art of Devotion (Washington, 2019), Sugata Ray (History of Art Department) shows how this place-centered theology emerged in the wake of the Little Ice Age (ca. 1550-1850), an epoch marked by climatic catastrophes across the globe. In a major contribution to the emerging field of eco-art history, Ray compares early modern conceptions of the environment and current assumptions about nature and culture.
Ray is joined by Whitney Davis (History of Art).
