Jame Schaefer (Ph.D., Marquette University, 1994, Systematics/Ethics), focuses on the constructive relationship of theology, the natural sciences, and technology with special attention to religious foundations for ecological ethics. Her publications include Theological Foundations for Environmental Ethics: Reconstructing Patristic and Medieval Concepts (Georgetown University Press, 2009), Confronting the Climate Crisis: Catholic Theological Perspectives for which she served as the editor and a contributor (Marquette University Press, 2011), essays in several edited volumes, and articles in Cistercian Studies Quarterly, Theological Studies, and Worldviews: Religion, Culture, Science. She worked with faculty of other disciplines to develop the Interdisciplinary Minor in Environmental Ethics for which she serves as Director and advises Students for an Environmentally Active Campus. She involves faculty of various sciences in her courses, team-teaches with Physics an occasionally offered seminar on the origin and nature of the universe, and co-steers the Albertus Magnus Circle--an interdisciplinary faculty discussion group on religion-science issues. For her efforts, she received a Religion and Science Course Award from the Templeton Foundation and a Quality and Excellence in Teaching Science and Religion Award from the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences. She convened the Theology and Ecology and the Catholic Theology and Global Warming interest groups of the Catholic Theological Society of America for several years and maintains membership in the American Academy of Religion, the Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences, the College Theology Society, the International Society for Environmental Ethics, the International Society for the Study of Religion, Nature and Culture, and the Society of Christian Ethics. In progress are a monograph exploring the contributions that diverse disciplines make toward a cogent and fruitful understanding of the human person in our age of rapidly-advancing science and technology, an article reconstructing the doctrine of God's omnipotence to reflect our current scientific understanding of the world, an essay inspired by Thomas Aquinas applying the various components of the virtue of prudence to the current interest in building more nuclear power plants to generate electricity, and a manuscript in which shared teachings of the major world religions are explored as foundations for constructing a global water ethic.
