About Jane Compson

A broad-brush account of my research agenda is that I seek to apply my training in religious studies to contemporary contexts. For example, many of my current research interests involve applying insights from Buddhist traditions, particularly Buddhist understandings of the mind and its relation to suffering, to contemporary contexts, such as higher education pedagogy, environmental education and healthcare. My teaching reflects my interests in applied ethics and 'engaged' religion. I currently teach classes in Comparative Religion; Environmental Ethics; Philosophy, Religion and the Environment; Biomedical Ethics and Introduction to Ethics.
