Ryan Darr is a doctoral candidate in religious ethics at Yale University. He holds a Master of Theological Studies from the University of Notre Dame. His research focuses on issues of agency, causality and responsibility, especially in light of structural injustices and largescale social problems. His writings on these issues, especially in relation to climate change, can be found in Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics, Studies in Christian Ethics, and Environmental Ethics. He is currently completing a dissertation that explores similar concerns in historical perspective by giving an account of the theological origins of consequentialism among Protestant ethicists in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
