Dr. Joseph A. P. Wilson, Assistant Editor, Journal for the Study of Religion, Nature and Culture, and Instructor at Fairfield University in Connecticut will speak via SKYPE on "The Righteous Wrath of the Dene-Yeniseian Eagle-Slayer: Asian-Athabaskan Cultural Ties Demonstrated in Myth and Lore."
Dr. Wilson spoke last year during the first Long Ago Yukon SKYPE speaker series. His intriguing perspective on the migration of Athabaskan peoples from Asia into the Americas lead to a second invitation to continue his conversation with interested Yukoners this year.
Journal for the Study of Religion, Nature and Culture focuses on a (ReligionandNature.com) continuing inquiry into the complex relationships between human beings, their religious beliefs and practices, and their earthly habitats. It features the work and projects of an international and interdisciplinary community of scholars investigating the nexus of religion, nature and culture, including the subfield sometimes called religion and ecology.
