Siena Center Lecture: Christiana Z. Peppard
by Dan Armstrong
Christiana Z. Peppard
Siena Center will host a lecture by Christiana Z. Peppard, a scholar whose research focuses on the duality of water as both a scarce ecological resource and as a significant theological symbol. The lecture will be held on Thursday, February 21, at 7 p.m. in the Priory Auditorium. 

The lecture, titled "Living Water: Ecology, Sacramentality and the Hydrography of Faith," will explore the ethical, ecological and theological significance of fresh water in today's world. 

Peppard is assistant professor of theology and science at Fordham University. She received her PhD in theology with distinction from the Yale School of Divinity in 2011. Her dissertation focused on the creation of an ethic of fresh water in an era of globalization by drawing on resources in moral anthropology and Catholic social teaching. 

She is author of several articles and essays on ecology, ethics and theology, and is co-editor of the books Expanding Horizons in Bioethics and the forthcoming Just Sustainability: Technology, Ecology, and Resource Extraction

Prior to joining the faculty at Fordham, she served as cathedral scholar in residence at St. John the Divine in New York City and visiting scholar at the Center for Ethics Education at Fordham. She holds a master's degree in ethics from Yale and a bachelor's degree in human biology from Stanford University. 

The lecture is free and open the public.
Time: Thursday, February 21, 7:00 PM
