FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS: FRIDAY 16th JUNE DEADLINE 


Globalization, Environmental Ethics and Environmental Justice 

International Conference, 24th-28th August 2006, 

Organized by Lyman Briggs School, Michigan State University 

Registration & further details now at: http://www.lymanbriggs.msu.edu/geeej 

Papers are invited for the following interdisciplinary conference, to be 
held at Michigan State University, East Lansing and focused on unfolding 
environmental developments. As globalization advances and the global 
character of many environmental problems become more manifest, wider 
perspectives are stimulated in local environmental traditions. In North 
America, a burgeoning environmental justice movement makes links between 
environmental damage, poverty and race that strongly recall longstanding 
political concerns in Europe and the South. In Western Europe, scepticism 
and mistrust of GM and other new deep technologies raises questions about 
the character of “nature” long discussed in relation to the American 
wilderness tradition. About the globe, environmental activists grapple with 
new problems of human impacts, risk, technology, consumption and just 
distribution, and articulate new visions of the future. This conference aims 
to bring together a range of disparate voices across the globe and the 
disciplines, broadening these new international discussions by bringing 
distinctly American traditions of environmental ethics into dialogue with 
international concerns in environmental politics, philosophy, literature, 
sociology, history and economics. The conference is organized by the Lyman 
Briggs School of Science, which has long pioneered research co-operation 
right across the disciplines between arts and sciences at Michigan State 
University, the USA’s first land-grant University. Workshop topics will 
include: 

Environmental Citizenship

"Solitude, in the sense of being often alone, is essential to any depth of
meditation or of character; and solitude in the presence of natural beauty 
and grandeur, is the cradle of thoughts and aspirations which are not only 
good for the individual, but which society could ill do without" -
John Stuart Mill
