Call for Papers International Society for Environmental Ethics

 2021 Eastern Division Meeting of the American Philosophical Association

Submissions are invited for the International Society for Environmental Ethics (ISEE) group sessions at the 2021 Eastern Division Meeting of the American Philosophical Association (APA). The meeting is scheduled for January 4-7, 2021 in at the Sheraton New York Times Square in New York City.

ISEE invites submissions of individual papers (approximately 20 minutes presentation) or proposals for themed sessions (particular topics, author-meets-critics, etc.). People working in any area of ethics related to the environment or environmental issues are encouraged to submit proposals.  However, we are particularly interested in work 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, or that engage issues of contemporary relevance.  You do not need to be a member of ISEE in order to submit a proposal; however, we ask that all presenters have a current membership in the society.

Please note the following information from the APA: Currently, all three APA divisions are planning to hold in-person meetings in 2021. At the same time, we are also considering alternative formats, such as virtual meetings, as contingencies in the case that our usual meeting format becomes impossible.

Submission Procedure:

For individual paper submissions, please submit either: (1) a 500-word abstract, or (2) a full paper (approx. 3000 words).

For themed sessions, please submit the proposed session title, a brief description of the session, names of all those participating, and titles for each paper/presentation. Paper abstracts (of approx. 500 words) are strongly encouraged. Participants should be confirmed as willing to attend if the session goes forward.

Materials should be submitted in Microsoft Word or PDF format to: Marion Hourdequin (ISEE Vice-President) at mhourdequin@coloradocollege.edu.  Please include “ISEE/APA” in the subject line.  The deadline for submitting proposals is Wednesday, July 15, 2020.

Call for Nominations for the

2020 ISEE Andrew Light Award for Public Philosophy

 The International Society for Environmental Ethics established an award to promote work in public philosophy and honor contributions to the field by Dr. Andrew Light, who received the inaugural award in his name at our 2017 annual summer meeting.

With this call, the Society seeks nominations for the Andrew Light Award for Public Philosophy. We strive to recognize public philosophers working in environmental ethics and philosophy, broadly construed, those who are working to bring unique insights or methods to broaden the reach, interaction, and engagement of public philosophy with the wider public.  This may be exemplified in published work or engagement in environmental issues of public importance.

The award is offered without prejudice to stage of career and may be demonstrated by singular work, or engagement of importance, or over a career.  It is important to note that early career scholars are viable candidates and their nominations strongly encouraged. Self-nominations are welcome.

Nominations should include:

(a) 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;

(b) The nominee’s curriculum vitae or professional resume.

Nominations may also include:

(c) Descriptions and representative samples of work in public philosophy, such as op-eds, public presentations, descriptions of philosophically driven civic interactions, or alternative media engagements (blogs, videos, podcasts, etc.) or work about the public importance of environmental philosophy in professional journals;

(d) Additional letters of endorsement for the nomination, no more than two.

 

Nominations assembling these materials into one Adobe Acrobat PDF file are strongly preferred.

Nominations previously submitted for the 2019 Award may be reactivated. Please contact us, as below.

Nominations are due by October 1, 2020. They will be evaluated by ISEE Officers and members of the ISEE Nominating Committee.

 

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

Announcement of the winner and finalists will be made at the ISEE group session meeting during the Eastern Division American Philosophical Assoc., Jan. 4-7, 2021. The award includes a financial prize.

ISEE Mentoring Initiative, Update on 50th Earth Day 2020 (April 22)

 

The new ISEE Mentoring Initiative is moving forward, and this year we’ve focused on supporting environmental philosophy teaching.  We are in the process of updating teaching resources on the ISEE website with new syllabi, assignments, and activities (thanks to all who contributed!), and the updated site is expected to go live by early May.  We also organized a workshop on engaged and inclusive pedagogies in environmental philosophy for the 2020 Pacific APA (cancelled due to the pandemic), which we hope to reschedule either in-person or virtually during the 2020-21 academic year.

Simona Capisani (UC-Irvine) is directing the Mentoring Initiative along with ISEE Vice President Marion Hourdequin, and we have a wonderful group of participants who are helping contribute to and shape our projects going forward.  ISEE members who would like to get involved are encouraged to email Marion Hourdequin (mhourdequin@coloradocollege.edu) and to keep an eye out for announcements of upcoming virtual mentoring committee meetings on the ISEE listserv.  We expect to hold our next meeting in May or June.  Stay tuned!

Teaching Environmental Philosophy: Engaged and Inclusive Pedagogies

Organizers:

Simona Capisani, University of California-Irvine and Marion Hourdequin, Colorado College

This workshop aims to provide both new and experienced faculty the opportunity to explore engaged and inclusive teaching approaches and pedagogies in environmental philosophy.  The workshop will provide resources for teaching stand-alone classes focused on environmental ethics, environmental philosophy, and environmental justice, as well as ideas for integrating environmental dimensions into existing courses such as political philosophy, philosophy of science, aesthetics, and epistemology.  In the first hour of the workshop, panelists will share ideas for inclusive teaching, community-engaged learning, and student-centered pedagogies in environmental philosophy, followed by a moderated discussion/Q&A.  The second hour of the workshop will give participants the opportunity to discuss course syllabi and share ideas for environmental philosophy teaching in multiple contexts, including environmental ethics and environmental justice courses, as well as environmentally-related units in other philosophy classes.  Participants are encouraged to bring complete or draft syllabi to share, and to contribute ideas as part of a collaborative conversation.

The following speakers are confirmed as panelists:
