Johan Elverskog, Professor and Chair of Religious Studies at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, relates the surprising history of Buddhist culture’s destructive relationship with nature in “The Buddha’s Footprint”, as part of our special section on extinction.
Sam Mowe, a Tricycle contributing editor and the guest editor of this issue’s special section on extinction (“Reflections on an Impermanent World“), is the Garrison Institute’s Marketing and Communications Manager. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Paul Kingsnorth, an English author, poet, and Zen Buddhist practitioner who now resides in Ireland, is the cofounder of the Dark Mountain Project, a collective of writers, artists, and thinkers who feel that literature and art will play a crucial role in responding to and coming to terms with our current ecological, economic, and social crises. Kingsnorth’s own response (“The Witness”) appears in this issue’s special section on extinction.
