The Fifth Annual Meeting of the Society for Ecofeminism, Environmental Justice, and Social Ecology (SEEJSE)
November 2, 2009, Arlington, VA
CALL FOR PAPERS

In conjunction with the International Association for Environmental Philosophy (IAEP), the Society invites paper proposals for its annual meeting, to be held in Arlington, VA on November 2, 2009, immediately after the main IAEP program. (IAEP website: www.environmentalphilosophy.org)

Please send 1-2 page (single-spaced) proposals in Word format to SEEJSE co-Chair, Keith Peterson, keith.peterson (at) colby.edu. Proposals should also indicate any special audio-visual or equipment needs. The deadline for receipt of proposals is March 20th, 2009. Notice of selection will arrive by May 1st, 2009.

The meeting provides a forum for writers in the growing fields of Ecofeminism, Environmental Justice, and Social or Political Ecology to connect issues traditionally treated in environmental philosophy, such as human relations with non-human others, wilderness, and the value of nature, to issues of social justice. These discourses emphasize that environmental problems resulting from human-nature relations are closely interconnected with problems in human-to-human relations. SEEJSE seeks to encourage the connection of abstract philosophical analysis with empirical data on human lived experience. It aims proactively to expand the perspectives and concerns of environmental philosophers to be inclusive of perspectives traditionally marginalized in philosophy in general and environmental philosophy in particular, especially issues of concern to women, people of color, indigenous peoples, and people living in developing nations. Paper proposals on any of these topics are welcome.

For more information, please contact Keith Peterson (keith.peterson (at) colby.edu) or Patricia Glazebrook (pglazebr (at) dal.ca).
 
CALL FOR PAPERS

Meeting of The International Association for Environmental Philosophy at the annual meeting of the American Philosophical Association Eastern Division

27-30 December 2007, New York, NY

The International Association for Environmental Philosophy (IAEP) invites paper proposals in the form of full (1-2 page) abstracts. Proposals for either individual papers or sessions organized around a specific topic (3-4 presenters) will be considered. The deadline for submission of abstracts is Friday, May 1, 2009.

Please send 1-2 page (single-spaced) proposals in Word format to IAEP Secretary Steven Vogel (vogel (at) denison.edu). Since individual and panel proposals are chosen through an anonymous review process, names, affiliations, and addresses of authors and panel must be stated only on one (1) separate cover sheet and omitted from the proposals and footnotes. Proposals should also indicate any special audio-visual or equipment needs.

Notice of selection will arrive by mid-June. Presenters will be expected to have current IAEP membership.

The International Association for Environmental Philosophy offers a forum for the philosophical discussion of our relation to the natural environment. Embracing a broad understanding of environmental philosophy, IAEP encourages not only discussions of environmental ethics, but of environmental aesthetics, ontology, theology, the philosophy of science, political philosophy, ecofeminism, and the philosophy of technology. IAEP also welcomes a diversity of approaches to these issues, including those inspired by Continental philosophy, the history of philosophy, and the tradition of American philosophy.

Membership in IAEP is open to everyone. For information about joining IAEP or
