Meeting of
The International Association for Environmental Philosophy
at the annual meeting of the
American Philosophical Association—Eastern Division
December 27-30, 2013, Baltimore, MD – Marriott Waterfront

The International Association for Environmental Philosophy (IAEP) invites paper proposals in the form of full (1-2 page) abstracts. Proposals for either individual papers or sessions organized around a specific topic (3-4 presenters) will be considered.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is Monday, April 29, 2013.  Notice of selection will arrive by early June.  Note that all presenters must be members of IAEP at the time of the conference.

Please send 1-2 page (single-spaced) proposals in Word format to IAEP Secretary Steven Vogel (vogel@denison.edu). Since individual and panel proposals are chosen through an anonymous review process, each submission should contain two attachments: (1) a cover letter that provides detailed contact information(including physical and electronic addresses and academic affiliation) of the author(s). In addition, if you anticipate the need for audio-visual equipment should your proposal be accepted please indicate exactly what will be required in this letter (we cannot guarantee it but every effort will be made to accommodate your request). (2) The proposal itself, without any identifying information as to the author(s). In the case of panel proposals, a description of the theme of the panel should be included as well as proposals for each of the papers in the panel.

The International Association for Environmental Philosophy offers a forum for the philosophical discussion of our relation to the natural environment. Embracing a broad understanding of environmental philosophy, IAEP encourages not only discussions of environmental ethics, but of environmental aesthetics, ontology, theology, the philosophy of science, political philosophy, ecofeminism, and the philosophy of technology. IAEP also welcomes a diversity of approaches to these issues, including those inspired by Continental philosophy, the history of philosophy, and the tradition of American philosophy.

Membership in IAEP is open to everyone. For information about joining IAEP or subscribing to the journal Environmental Philosophy, please visit our website http://www.environmentalphilosophy.org
