She teaches in a master's program in religion and ecology between the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and the Divinity School. Shefounded and directs the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale, which arose from a series of 10 conferences held from 1996 to 1998 at Harvard's Center for the Study of World Religions. She is a series editor of the 10 volumes that were published and distributed by Harvard University Press.

 

Mary Evelyn is a specialist in East Asian religions, especially Confucianism. She is the author of Moral and Spiritual Cultivation in Japanese Neo-Confucianism (SUNY, 1989), and The Philosophy of Qi (Columbia University, 2007).  She has also edited two volumes on Confucian Spirituality (Continuum, 2003, 2004) and Confucianism and Ecology (Harvard, 1998).

With Brian Swimme, Tuckercreated a multi-media project titled Journey of the Universe that includes a book with Yale University Press (2011), an Emmy award winning film, and a series of Conversations. They are now offering online classes from Yale drawing on these materials and on the worldview of Thomas Berry who inspired Journey of the Universe. Together they edited Living Cosmology: Christian Responses to Journey of the Universe (Orbis Books, 2016).

Tuckerhelped Thomas Berry edit many of his essays for publication, including The Great Work (Random House, 1999), Evening Thoughts (University of California, 2006), and The Sacred Universe (Columbia University, 2009).
