Call for Papers
International Society for Environmental Ethics
2023 American Philosophical Association Central Division Meeting

Deadline: Monday, August 15, 2022

Submissions are invited for the International Society for Environmental Ethics (ISEE) group sessions at the Central Division Meeting of the American Philosophical Association (APA) which will be held in Denver, CO from February 22nd-25th, 2023. At the moment, we plan to be in person.

ISEE invites submissions of individual papers (approx. 20 minutes in length) or proposals for themed sessions (particular topics, author-meets-critics, etc.). Work in any area of environmental philosophy is welcome, but we encourage work that challenges the traditional boundaries of the discipline. ISEE aims to build inclusive and welcoming spaces in our conferences, programs, and communications by supporting people of diverse backgrounds and identities, as well as by actively working against discrimination, bias, and exclusion.

You do not need to be a member of ISEE to submit a proposal; however, if accepted we ask that all presenters are active members ($50 regular / $35 student). Membership dues help fund room and A/V expenses at the APA, along with the other activities of the Society. Financial assistance with membership is available on a case-by-case basis. For information on membership: Further, all presenters at ISEE group sessions must also register for the Central APA.

Submission Procedure

For individual paper submissions, please submit either a 500-word abstract or a full paper(approx. 3000 words).

Papers presented previously or already accepted for presentation at an ISEE APA group session or ISEE annual meeting will not be considered, and all else equal, priority will be given to those who have not presented at an ISEE meeting or session within the past year.

Materials should be submitted in Microsoft Word or PDF format, prepared for blind review (please include pertinent information in your email) and emailed to Megs Gendreau ( Please include “ISEE/2023 APA” in the subject line and submit before 5pm (EDT) August 15th 2022. Questions about the sessions or ISEE may be directed to Megs Gendreau.
