Todd LeVasseur

Todd LeVasseur earned his PhD (2011) in the Department of Religion at the University of Florida, where he studied religion and nature, environmental ethics, and North American religious history. An alumnus of the College of Charleston, he returned to his alma mater to teach during the 2010-12 academic years.  In terms of research interests, Todd studies the interface of religious beliefs/experiences/institutional identities/practices (and cultural narratives and identities, broadly), and how these both shape and are shaped by the natural, “more-than-human” world.  The overarching research question that guides his scholarly path is how can the human animal, from individual to global scales, learn to actively generate just, resilient, regenerative, and sustainable lifeways as we move deeper into the Anthropocene?
