‘The Convenience Just Tastes So Good!’
Profit, Public Health, and Ethics in Our Ongoing Desire for Bottled Waters
With Prof. Christiana Zenner
Christiana Zenner is Associate Professor of Theology, Science and Ethics in the Department of Theology at Fordham University, where she is affiliated faculty in Environmental Studies and American Studies. Her research into emerging and established fresh water ethics intersects with ecological theory, religious ecologies, developments in the earth sciences, and the ecological turn in Catholic social teaching. She lectures nationally and internationally on these topics and has provided analysis of contemporary topics in ecological ethics and religion and science in venues such as Public Radio International, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, The New Republic, the Washington Post, TED-Ed, MSNBC, and others. She is the author of the 2018 book, Just Water: Theology, Ethics, and Fresh Water Crises. Before earning her PhD from Yale in Religious Studies, she earned a BA from Stanford in Human Biology.
As part of PULSE’s 50th anniversary, Prof. Zenner will serve as
scholar-in-residence during the week of December 2 and guest lecture in each of the 16 PULSE core courses. As part of her residency, she is offering this public lecture.
