CFP: ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE 2017: LOOKING BACK, LOOKING FORWARD
UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY, 6-8 NOVEMBER 2017
In 1997, the University of Melbourne hosted a major international conference on ‘Environmental Justice: Global Ethics for the 21stCentury’. In 2017, the Sydney Environment Institute at the University of Sydney will host an anniversary event, focused on both a retrospective look at environmental justice scholarship and activism and the prospects and themes for current and future work in the field. What have we learned, and what are the challenges, trends, and directions for environmental justice theories, movements and campaigns, and institutions and politics?
The 2017 conference, like the earlier one, will have a global and interdisciplinary focus, and will also bring together scholars and activists addressing EJ in human communities and those focused on nonhuman nature.
Paper proposals are welcome in any area of environmental justice research and practice, though we encourage work that combines the ‘looking back, looking forward’ theme. Note there will be an emphasis on non humans / interspecies justice.
