CFP: Settler Colonialism and Environmental Ethics

Special Issue of Environmental Ethics

Settler colonialism intersects with environmental issues, e.g. land use, water management, traditional ecological knowledge, ethics of place, environmental justice…  This connection is, however, sorely under-discussed in environmental philosophy. This special issue intends to breach this divide.

Papers can treat any topic in settler colonialism that connects with environmental philosophy broadly construed.

Proposals are invited in English but translation options for parallel publication in other languages can be discussed

Proposals from voices in academically under-represented groups are especially invited

Non-academically-traditional approaches are also welcomed
