CFPs for international political ecology conference: “Undisciplined Environments” (March 20-23, 2016, Stockholm)

A compilation of panels and workshops that have open calls for contributions to the Undisciplined Environments international political ecology conference (Stockholm, March 20-23, 2016).

van_noMultiThe International political ecology conference UNDISCIPLINED ENVIRONMENTS will be held in Stockholm, 20-23 March 2016. The Conference is organized by the European Network of Political Ecology (ENTITLE), the Centre for Social Studies of the University of Coimbra, and the Environmental Humanities Laboratory of the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. It aims to bring scholars, activists and practitioners together to discuss the possibilities for an undisciplinary political ecology, which would transcend the pervasive divisions across scholarly traditions and address the structures of the problems and the conflicts at hand.

Below we have compiled a non-exhaustive list of calls for contributions to panels or workshops that have been organized for this conference (in order of deadlines). For each call we provide the title, names and contact details of the organizers, deadlines for abstract submission, and links to the full calls.

Individuals (scholars, activists, practitioners, etc.) whose papers do not fit into any of these panels can also submit a stand-alone paper to the conference’s general Call for Papers (deadline: October 9th), which will then be integrated with other papers with similar topics into additional panels.
