Devin Zuber teaches as an associate professor in the Department for Historical and Cultural Studies of Religion at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) in Berkeley, California. He received his PhD, MA, and MPhil in Literature and American Studies from the City University of New York (CUNY) and, prior to moving to Berkeley, he taught American Studies at the University of Osnabrück. Currently on sabbatical from the GTU, he has spent the 2015–2016 year as a visiting research professor in Stockholm University’s Department for Aesthetics and Culture, and as a fellow at the Ingmar Bergman Estate on Fårö Island in the Baltic. His current book, A Language of Things (University of Virginia Press, 2017) explores the dynamics between religious ideology and environmental aesthetics in nineteenth and early twentieth-century American nature writing. While at the Carson Center, he will be completing a related project on the landscape paintings of artist William Keith (1838–1911) that became instrumental for the visual iconography and early advocacy efforts of the Sierra Club.
