 David Haskell Biography

David Haskell's work integrates scientific and contemplative studies of the natural world. His book, "The Forest Unseen: A Year's Watch in Nature," was described by E. O. Wilson as "a new genre of nature writing, located between science and poetry." A profile in The New York Times said of Haskell that he "thinks like a biologist, writes like a poet, and gives the natural world the kind of open-minded attention one expects from a Zen monk rather than a hypothesis-driven scientist."

Haskell holds degrees from the University of Oxford and from Cornell University. He is a professor of biology at the University of the South, where he served as chair of biology. He is a fellow of the American Council of Learned Societies and was granted elective membership in the American Ornithologists' Union in recognition of "significant contributions to ornithology." His research has been sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Fish and Wildlife Service, the World Wildlife Fund and the Templeton Foundation, among others. Haskell's classes have received national attention for the innovative ways they combine science, contemplatio, and action in the community.

In 2009, the Carnegie and CASE Foundations named him Professor of the Year for Tennessee. The Oxford American featured him in 2011 as one of the southern U.S.'s most creative teachers, and his teaching has been profiled in USA Today, The Tennesseean, and other newspapers.

He lives in Sewanee, Tennessee, with his wife, Sarah Vance who runs Cudzoo Farm, a homestead farm that produces hand-made goat milk soaps.

Speaking Topics
  • Science and contemplation, seen through the lens of one square meter of forest. What can be learned from the integration of scientific and meditative approaches to the natural world?

  • Social networks in nature. From the grand scale of ecology and evolution to the microscopic world of molecules, life is interconnected in many surprising ways. An understanding of these networks gives us a new way to think about how nature operates.

  • Contemplative practice in the classroom. What can silence, mediation, and contemplative awareness offer teachers and students?
