CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: 24th INTERNATIONAL INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON THE ENVIRONMENT

June 22-24, 2018
Delta Hotel and Resort
475 President Kennedy Avenue

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.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: May 15, 2018

Please, submit your abstract (of no more than 300 words) by May 15, 2018. All submitted abstracts will be evaluated for presentation and publication in the Book of Abstracts which will be available at the Conference.

Reading Retreat in Environmental Philosophy: Umbria, Italy

READING RETREAT IN UMBRIA, ITALY

NATURE IN THE ANTHROPOCENE: RESTORATION AND REWILDING

Monte Castello di Vibio. June 3 – 14, 2018.

Announcing ten days of reading and discussion on “Nature in the Anthropocene” in Umbria, Italy. This retreat will take place in the medieval Italian hill town of Monte Castello di Vibio using facilities made available by the International Center for the Arts. A small group of scholars will gather to spend mornings reading and discussing important contemporary papers with optional evening sessions workshopping papers-in-progress by the group’s members.  Afternoons are free.

The idea is to provide a relaxing and unique environment for some focused work on important emerging areas in environmental thought.  Monte Castello provides a serene and picturesque setting for our work. Its proximity to Todi, Florence, and Perugia provides opportunities for side-trips during (or after) the workshop. The small group is designed to provide a supportive and high quality intellectual environment for exploring new areas of environmental philosophy and for peer evaluation of each other’s work and ideas.  Reading materials will be decided upon by participants prior to arrival in Italy.

There will be three field trips during our stay.  One will involve a morning spent with truffle hunting dogs in the Monte Castello area.  A second will be to Assisi and the forests that cloak Monte Subasio.  The third will be to the Monti Sibillini National Park to discuss some Italian efforts at re-wilding. The weekend in the middle of the retreat will be open to use as you wish.

The fee of 1650 EUR will include food, wine, and lodging in Monte Castello for 11 nights (Sunday to Wednesday) as well as transportation for the field trips. Meals out during the field trips as well as travel expenses to and from the Center for the Arts in Monte Castello di Vibio are the responsibility of participants. The lodging is in the 14th century ex-convent in which the Center for the Arts is located. The rooms are simple with shared bathrooms. (Rooms with private bathrooms at the local hotel are available for an additional fee).

(The workshop is contingent upon interest and sufficient (10) applicants. Feel free to share with other potentially interested parties).

Please email  christopher.preston@umontana.edu by October 22nd to indicate initial interest.
