Reflections, Transitions, & Solutions: Perspectives on the Past, Present & Future of Environmental Issues

Abstract submission deadline: March 10, 2017
The environment is more politicized than ever and creative approaches are required to understand and address the environmental issues that pervade everyday life.
Unfolding political realities, funding uncertainties and public confusion leave us in a
crucial position to take stock of environmental issues.
The conference will serve to forge or strengthen interdisciplinary ties as we critically reflect on the environment as a dynamic process of both physical conditions and social understandings. Together, we will explore pressing questions about how best to engage in meaningful interdisciplinary work to both recognize and respond to environmental realities.
Ideal papers will focus on case studies or cross-sectional analyses of (1) creative approaches to examine the past, present, or future of environmental issues
or (2) interdisciplinary efforts that seek to address or adapt to such problems
in local, regional, national, and/or international venues.
