David Wellman’s work focuses on the relationship between religion and diplomacy, ecological ethics and interreligious engagement. He is the author of Sustainable Diplomacy: Ecology, Religion and Ethics in Muslim-Christian Relations (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2004) and Sustainable Communities (Geneva: World Council of Churches, 2001).
Wellman’s writing on diplomacy was used as the basis for two international conferences, whose outcome was the collaborative volume Sustainable Diplomacies (London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2010).
Wellman is a long-time club musician, whose last band, the Seville-based ¿Que te pongo?, included musicians from Spain, Morocco, the Netherlands, Scotland and the United States. He is currently the bassist and a founding member of the Chicago-based queer post-punk music collective, The Recruitment.
