Call For Papers: Culture, Environment and Eco-Politics

A One-Day Conference, University College Northampton, UK, 17th June,
2006

Proposals for 20-minute presentations or panels of three to four
presenters are invited for a conference on Culture, Environment and
Eco-Politics to take place at University College Northampton, UK, June
17th, 2006.

We are particularly interested in those areas where cultural and social
analysis encounters questions of ecological consciousness and
environmentally-informed political agency. We welcome proposals from a
range of disciplines and interests with a broadly-defined 'cultural'
dimension. Issues for consideration might include, but are not limited=
to:

* Cultural studies, cultural politics and environmentalist agendas
* Ecological pedagogies
* Histories of environmentalism and environmentalist histories
* Green readings: cultural texts and ecological consciousness
* Modernity, postmodernity and environmentalism
* Economy and ecology
* Critiquing green critiques
* Space, place and environment
* Environmentalism and identities: race, class, gender, sexuality
* Identifying green traditions
* Social movements and ecological agency
* Marxism, feminism and ecology

We will seek to publish a selection of papers presented at the
conference. Please send proposals and enquiries to David Wragg and Nick
Heffernan at: David.Wragg_at_northampton.ac.uk
<mailto:David.Wragg_at_northampton.ac.uk> and
