Ryerson University, Toronto
The Call for Papers deadline has been extended to February 17th, 2017. For submission instructions, download the 2017 Call for Papers (PDF).
The Environmental Studies Association of Canada (ESAC.ca) is pleased to invite you to participate in our Annual Conference at Ryerson University as part of the 2017 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
The conference promises to be compelling with confirmed keynote speakers Michael Shellenberger (President of Environmental Progress, Senior Fellow and former President of the Breakthrough Institute) and Deborah McGregor (Canada Research Char in Indigenous Environmental Justice, York University’s Faculty of Environmental Studies).
This year’s conference theme, From Far & Wide: The Next 150, invites reflection on Canada’s past as we look to the future. As the Congress organizers have noted, the conference theme “is inclusive of different ideas, geographies, cultures, countries, schools of thought and disciplines, encouraging cross-collaboration and an interdisciplinary approach.” Reflecting this theme, ESAC keenly invites submissions of scholarship and practice to engage with, address, and energize the vital environmental opportunities and challenges facing the world today. We invite proposals for paper presentations, pre-organized panel sessions, poster presentations, or—new this year—short 10-minute thesis presentations by graduate students.
All proposals must be submitted by email to ESACconference2017@gmail.com, by Friday, February 17th, 2017 (acceptance e-mails will be sent out in February 2017). The conference organizing committee is accepting four distinct types of proposals:
- Individual paper presentations
- Pre-organized panel sessions
- Conference poster (and discussion)
- 10-minute thesis presentations (open to current graduate students)
