Deadline: January 15, 2015 Continue reading
In the last ten years there has been an explosion of writing about the contributions phenomenology can make to our understanding of the environment. The volume, proposed by Rowman & Littlefield, would be a compilation of essays reflecting the work of contemporary practitioners of phenomenology into the core questions of environmental philosophy. The sense of “phenomenology” here is an expansive one, meant to include not only traditional varieties, but also those, for example, informed by more existential, hermeneutic, post-structuralist, or post-phenomenological approaches and figures.
AOS: Philosophy of science, technology, environment. Interests in literature, public policy, the environment, history of science, and/or philosophy of technology would be especially welcomed.
Please send a single-spaced proposal (500-600 words) PLUS abstract (75-100 words) in Word format to IAEP Secretary, Steven Vogel, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since the selection process is through blind review, proposals should include three attachments:
- A cover letter that provides detailed contact information (including physical and electronic addresses & academic affiliation) of the author(s) AND indicates the need for audio/visual equipment, if any.
- In a separate document, the abstract, without any identifying information as to the author(s).
- In a separate document, the proposal, without any identifying information as to the author(s).
Panel proposals should include an abstract for the panel as a whole (350-500 words) plus cover letter, proposal and abstract for each paper as described above. Each paper proposal will be judged on its own merit.
Each author may submit only 1 proposal for consideration (by IAEP or one of its satellite groups) each year. Papers previously published or under review for publication will not be accepted. Inclusion on the program is contingent on becoming a dues paying member of IAEP after receiving notification of acceptance.
