Delta Hotel and Resort
475 President Kennedy Avenue
Montreal QC H3A 1J7
Canada

 

The Interdisciplinary Environmental Association (IEA) invites you to participate in the 23rd International Interdisciplinary Conference on the Environment (IICE)! The conference is motivated by the increasing need to combine ideas and research findings from different disciplines to enhance our understanding of the interactions between the natural environment and human institutions. Conference presentations focus on:

  • What all disciplines have to offer with respect to understanding environmental and resource problems;
  • Possible solutions that are available;
  • The implications of the globalization of environmental concerns.

The conference welcomes environmental academics, practitioners, and interested colleagues regardless of discipline or country. Participants may organize sessions (please ask for “Panel Organizer Guidelines”), present papers, participate in poster sessions, chair sessions, discuss papers, participate in roundtable discussions, or simply observe. The conference also welcomes papers and posters submitted by both graduate and undergraduate students, as well as papers and posters submitted in association with chapters of Kappa Alpha Omicron (advisors, please contact kalshah@iun.edu for details).

To facilitate communication, authors should make an effort to write papers and design posters that can be understood by an audience outside their disciplines. All papers submitted for publication consideration in Interdisciplinary Environmental Review must pass peer review from both within and outside the primary discipline of the author(s). The program consists of:

  • Small concurrent seminar-type sessions with chairperson, presenters, and a discussant assigned to comment on and integrate the ideas of the presentations
  • A poster session with time for discussion with the authors
  • Round-table thematic discussions with moderator
  • Workshops and panels
  • Invited keynote speakers
  • Welcome reception
  • Conference banquet luncheon

There will be an opening reception for all on Thursday evening, June 21. Registration and conference materials will be available at the Reception and starting at 8:00 AM throughout the conference. Students are welcome at all events.

We welcome research that crosses the boundaries of traditional disciplines to frame environmental problems, propose working models, or address field, community, or academic issues in any area of environmental and sustainability research.

CFP: International Association for the Study of Environment, Space, and Place

14th Annual Conference

The International Association for the Study of Environment, Space, and Place

University of Mary Washington

April 27-29, 2018

Conference Theme:

Wild Places, Natural Spaces

We live in a world increasingly populated and altered by human beings.  Along with the physical transformations have come fundamental changes in how we conceptualize our relationship with the world around us.  Where once wild places represented darkness, danger, and temptation, they now conjure images of personal challenge (“conquering” the Appalachian trail or Mount Rainier), individual spiritual renewal, or hope against the degradation of rampant consumerism, inequality, or political rot.  Nature—and its supposed pure form, wilderness—is both seen as the opposite of all things human and yet our true home.  These changing and often inconsistent metaphors and models guide us in every area of our lives—the social, economic, aesthetic, philosophic, religious, and scientific.  But questions arise at every turn:  Are we part of nature or distinct?  Do our “real” selves reside in “tamed” or “wild” spaces, and what do these mean?  Does our presence in a place, or the effects of our actions on a place, make it irreparably or happily humanized?  What responsibilities do we have to develop coherent and ethically-viable constructions of the human/nature nexus?  How, historically, have the ideas of wilderness, nature, and society co-evolved?  How have they been represented?  And, importantly, what does it mean to speak about the wild and the natural in a multicultural world in which we assign different meanings to these concepts?

This interdisciplinary conference will explore these and related questions.  We invite papers from any discipline that deal with the theme of this conference. Potential topics include:

 

·         Wilderness

·         Tame and wild

·         Nature and culture

·         Technology and society

·         Built, or rebuilt, natural place

·         Overpopulation and population ethics

·         Sustainability

·         Social construction of nature and culture

·         Phenomenology of wild and tame

·         Urban environmental ethics

·         Anthropological accounts of the wild

·         The mapping of human and nonhuman place

·         Historic conceptualizations of the natural

·         Aesthetic treatment of wildness

·         Ethics of preservation

·         Activism in defense of the natural

·         National parks as repositories of natural processes

Send proposals (please limit to 400 words) to Troy Paddock paddockt1@southernct.edu by Friday, February 9, 2018.  Each presentation will be capped at 20 minutes with an additional 10 minutes of Q&A time.  Proposals for 3-person panels are also welcome (each full session will be 90 minutes).
