FOCUS

The 2022 WPSA Environmental Political Theory (EPT) workshop gathers together an interdisciplinary group of environmental political theory scholars. We convene a one-day workshop to talk about our research, pedagogies, and the intersections between our academic work and the unfolding experiences of climate change around the globe. The workshop this year includes conversation about recent EPT books and publications, new directions in environmental political theory scholarship, activism and climate change, and publishing beyond the academy. We welcome anyone interested in these lively conversations. Independent scholars and graduate students are welcome.

TIMEFRAME

The in-person hybrid session is scheduled to begin at 9:00am PST and end at 5:00pm PST with a few coffee breaks and a lunch break. For those attending in-person, we are organizing a dinner together at 6:30pm. Please contact the organizers if you are interested in joining for dinner. In the event that the conference goes virtual, we will switch to a fully online session. If you would like to join the workshop please contact the organizers for the workshop agenda and Zoom link (if needed).

TOPIC:
The 2022 WPSA Interpretation and Method pre-conference workshop will showcase recent books that use one or more interpretive research methods in an explicitly interpretive methodological approach to its empirical topic. In a kind of "speed dating" fashion, each author will have 13-15 minutes to introduce their book topic and discuss its interpretive dimensions. Participants will have a chance to ask questions of the authors or more general methodological questions. Come join us to learn more about new books in interpretive political science!

TIMING:
The in-person, hybrid session is scheduled to begin at 1:45 pm Pacific Time, with a scheduled break and will last until 5:45 pm when those literally present will adjourn for drinks.

WHO:
Anyone who is registered, whether in person or virtually, is welcome to attend.
