Veldman, Robin Assistant Professor


I am an interdisciplinary environmental studies scholar whose research examines how religious beliefs and cultural identity shape attitudes toward and conceptions of the natural world. With training in the theories and methodologies of religious studies, my teaching and scholarship use the tools of the humanities and social sciences to interpret human-environmental interactions. Through my research I aim to help scholars, scientists, students, and the public better understand how environmental beliefs and values intersect with religion, culture, politics and history. My current research involves exploring American evangelical Christians' attitudes toward climate change.
