To mark the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, the ISEE and the Center for Environmental Philosophy are re-issuing an essay prize for scholars in the early stages of their career.
The prize is named in honor of Professor Holmes Rolston III, for his pioneering work in the field of environmental philosophy. Papers are invited on all aspects of environmental philosophy or environmental affairs (with a strong theoretical component).
A prize of $500 will be awarded to the winning essay. All submitted papers that qualify (see conditions) will be reviewed by an Essay Prize Committee in consultation with the Editorial Board of Environmental Ethics. The winning essay will be published in the journal Environmental Ethics.
Scholars who have earned their doctorate no more than five years prior to submission are invited to submit an essay. Submissions must be accompanied by a one-page CV to provide evidence of early career status.
The closing date for submissions is August 1st, 2020.
The word limit is 60,000 characters (including spaces), including notes and references. An abstract of 100-150 words should also be included. For style, consult the Chicago Manual of Style or any recent issue of Environmental Ethics. Essays must be prepared for blind review (cover page with contact information and email on a separate page). Submissions should be emailed to ISEE President Allen Thompson at: <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Please put ‘Essay Prize’ in the subject line of the email submission. The essay should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere, and should not be submitted to any other journal until the outcome of the competition is announced. The decision of the committee will be final. There is only one prize per year, and the committee reserves the right not to award the prize if submissions are not of an appropriate standard.
