CASCA 2013: CFP - Anthropology and the Environment

Collectively, humanity will face severe environmental challenges over the
coming decades that will tax our capacity to adapt and respond. In the
context of climate change and environmental degradation, the insights
provided by environmental anthropology will take on added importance in
the policy discourse. CASCA may play a valuable role by providing a forum
for anthropologists who concern themselves with the relations between
humans and their environment and with politicizing the study of
environmental issues. We wish to invite papers that are concerned with the
problem of environmental activism, the politics of climate change and the
capacity for obscuring or promoting local discourses and perspectives. The
goal of this session is to bring together scholarship from a range of
field sites in order to discover the common issues that underpin
environmental anthropology in a modern policy context, with the goal of
encouraging on-going discourse within CASCA.

Please submit 250 word abstracts and contact information to Lorne
Holyoak at by 27 February 2013.
