Call for Papers: Political Ecology at Home Conference

Posted by on January 10, 2003

The Rutgers Graduate Program in Geography invites participation in a one-day conference devoted to the theme: “Political Ecology at Home.” This is the first of two events organized under the rubric: “Political Ecology at Home/Environmental Justice Abroad” (the second to be held in 2004). Recent efforts to apply the key concepts of so-called third world political ecology to core industrialized countries and parallel moves to extend environmental justice analysis to resource management conflicts on the periphery represent some of the most exciting new developments in the field. It is this rich confluence of interests that the conferences are being organized to explore. Scholars interested in participating in the March 2003 conference should submit a 200-word abstract of a proposed paper topic and two-page curriculum vitae to Kevin St. Martin by January 15, 2003.
