PBS Airs Professor Sue Darlington’s Work with “Forest Monks”

Watch PBS “Forest Monks”

Anthropology and Asian studies professor Sue Darlington is writing a book about Thailand’s environmental Buddhism, including “tree ordinations” used to make forests sacred and off-limits to exploitation. The environmental efforts of these monks can place them in great danger, with numerous human rights violations and murders having occurred.

Professor Darlington and some of the monks with whom she has worked were interviewed in the PBS Religion and Ethics Newsweekly segment “Forest Monks.” In addition to its availability online, “Forest Monks” aired on PBS stations around the country.
