CALL FOR PAPERS – Environmental Ethics Session on Environmental Justice, winter 2013, Central APA

Submissions are invited for an International Society for Environmental Ethics (ISEE) session on environmental justice, to be held at the 2013 Central Division Meeting of the American Philosophical Association (APA).  The meeting will be held at the Riverside Hilton hotel, New Orleans, Wednesday, February 20 to Saturday, February 23, 2013. 

Papers addressing environmental justice issues of regional, national, and international importance are appropriate, as are papers with a largely theoretical focus.  Given the meeting’s location, case studies and discussions of issues of particular relevance to the southeastern United States, Gulf Coast, and New Orleans are welcomed.

If you’d like to participate in this session, please submit a paper title and extended abstract (500 words) in Microsoft Word or PDF format to Marion Hourdequin by email.  Please remove identifying marks from your submission, so as to make it suitable for blind review.

The deadline for proposals is Monday, August 20, 2012. Early submissions are welcome.  Decisions will be announced by mid-September.  Questions should be addressed to session organizer Marion Hourdequin.
