Pendle Hill Publishes Pamphlet by Jim Hood


Jim Hood’s pamphlet, The Ecology of Quaker Meeting, will be published on February 6, 2018 by Pendle Hill, the Quaker study center in Wallingford, Pennsylvania. 

Hood’s essay explores the deep analogy between the interconnection of beings in the natural world and those gathered in a Quaker meeting for worship, providing an ecological meditation on healing the brokenness of our human relationship with the earth.  For more information about this piece, #449 in the long-running Pendle Hill Pamphlet series, visit https://pendlehill.org/product/ecology-quaker-meeting/.

A member of the College faculty since 1999, Hood teaches nineteenth-century British literature, American nature writing, literature and ethics, and a first-year writing course on natural history accounts of central North Carolina for the Department of English and Creative Writing.  His other publications include a book on Alfred Tennyson (Ashgate, 2000), articles on Victorian literature, and a recent book (as editor) entitled Quakers and Literature (Friends Association for Higher Education, 2016).
