Convocation: "The Already Peaceable Kingdom: Animals & Peace" - Trevor Bechtel, Bluffton University
Trevor Bechtel is a religion professor at Bluffton University, in Ohio, and the recipient of the 2013-14 C. Henry Smith Peace Lectureship. Working from specific stories of animals across domestic and wild spaces, Dr. Bechtel argues that peace is found wherever we discover right relationships. His work aims at understanding the ecology of our relationships and seeking the full flourishing of all life. Surprising answers to questions of domestication, vegetarianism, hunting and pet owning will be considered.
