CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: 2021 Victoria Davion Award for Intersectionality in Environmental Ethics

International Society for Environmental Ethics

2021 Victoria Davion Award for Intersectionality in Environmental Ethics

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

To help build a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive field of environmental ethics, the

International Society for Environmental Ethics seeks to highlight intersectional scholarship in

environmental philosophy. To this end, we established an award in recognition Dr. Victoria Davion, who made cutting-edge contributions to interdisciplinary work in feminist and environmental ethics and was the founding editor of the journal, Ethics & the Environment. At the 2020 Annual Meeting of the Society, Dr. Chris Cuomo delivered a keynote address and was the inaugural recipient of the award.

With this call, the Society seeks nominations for the 2021 Victorian Davion Award for Intersectionality in Environmental Ethics. The award honors scholars engaged in intersectional work that describes, considers, or responds to overlapping forms of exclusion, discrimination, or injustice – such as the interplay of race, class, and gender in environmental injustice, or the relationship between colonialism and climate inequities.  Eligible candidates will be those whose work may be characterized, for example, as examining relations between environmental philosophy and feminist or gender studies, critical race theory, Indigenous studies, or disability studies. We aim to recognize work in research, teaching, and service that extends the scope of environmental ethics to incorporate perspectives and methods that have been historically marginalized or excluded from environmental philosophy as a discipline, and that address questions of epistemic justice, such as the devaluation of certain forms of knowledge within academic environmental philosophy, barriers to and opportunities for developing more inclusive perspectives, and approaches to respectfully collaborating across perspectives and traditions. In general, we seek to honor and advance work that brings different threads of philosophy and environmental thought—within and beyond formal academic discourse—together.

The award is open to individuals at all to stages of their career; however, candidates should demonstrate a sustained commitment to intersectional scholarship, or more broadly, to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of environmental ethics and beyond. Self-nominations are welcome.

Nominations should include:

  1. A letter of nomination, listing the name, affiliation (if any), and contact information of both the nominee and nominator. The letter should explain how and why the nominee qualifies for the award.
  2. The nominee’s curriculum vitae or professional resume.

Nominations may also include:

  • Descriptions, representative samples, or links to relevant work.
  • Additional letters of endorsement for the nomination, no more than two.

Please assemble the nominating materials into one PDF file. Nominations are due by March 15, 2021. They will be evaluated by ISEE Officers and members of the ISEE Nominating Committee.

Send nominations to ISEE President Allen Thompson: allen.thompson@oregonstate.edu

Announcement of the winner and finalists will be made at the 2021 Annual ISEE Meeting in June 2021.
