Amanda J. Baugh is Assistant Professor of Religion and Environment at California State University, Northridge.
"Baugh’s work is both timely and fascinating. Others in the field of religion and ecology would do well to follow her research. Baugh looks at how practices have shaped religion rather than analyzing how green religious ideology could or should be implemented. An ethnographic approach here is helpful, especially through Baugh’s analytic that investigates how various religious qualities are integrated into environmental social practices rather than replace traditional faith." - Worldviews: Global Religions, Culture, and Ecology
"Baugh demonstrates the power of first-rate ethnography.... [she] navigate[s] Chicago’s turbulent terrain of race relations with great skill and produce[s] an important study that significantly advances our understanding of religious environmentalism." - Journal of the American Academy of Religion
"Through participant observation and ethnographic interviews, Baugh is able to make a meaningful intervention into discussions of religion and ecology by reflecting on the role of earth stewardship in the context of lived experience." - Journal of American Culture
