Dan McKanan, PhD, of Harvard Divinity School, will speak on how the history of environmentalism, biodynamic agriculture, and the Camphill movement are closely intertwined, one of the themes of his new book, Eco-Alchemy: Anthroposophy and the History and Future of Environmentalism.
Dan serves as the Ralph Waldo Emerson Unitarian Universalist Senior Lecturer at Harvard Divinity School, where he has taught since 2008. He studies religious and spiritual movements for social transformation in the United States and beyond, with particular emphasis on environmental activism, intentional communities, and socialism. Much of his research focuses on the Unitarian Universalist tradition and the anthroposophical movement. He is the author of five books. Dan also serves as board chair of the International Communal Studies Association. At Harvard, he has chaired the MTS Curriculum Committee for many years, and participates actively in the American Studies program of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
