Donna M. Giancola is an associate professor of philosophy and director of the Religious Studies Program. She has written numerous articles on comparative religion and philosophy, feminism, and eco-feminism. She also has co-authored Her Underground, an eco-feminist novel (Solstice Publishers, 2013), and a philosophy textbook, World Ethics (Wadsworth, 2001). Professor Giancola has lectured extensively in national and international forums from Boston and Hawaii to Oxford, England, and India and most, recently, Bangkok, Thailand. Her latest article, "Women, Land, and Eco-Justice", appears in The Palgrave Handbook on Philosophy and Public Policy. Currently, she is working on another book project, In the Name of the Goddess: a Biophilic Ethic. In spite of her sunny disposition and attempts at being inspirational, she has been known to have an irreverent word or two to say.
