Call for proposals
The Birkbeck Students’ Union Women’s Network, in partnership with the SU Environment Society, the Birkbeck Unison Environmental Representative and the Birkbeck UCU Environmental Officer, is organising a symposium to hear from women researchers on the climate crisis, to be held at Birkbeck in early 2021.
Proposals for papers from researchers in any discipline are encouraged – we want to hear about the innovative and unique ways you can contribute to this discussion, especially those who are not traditionally given space in discussions about the environment but have meaningful contributions to make.
To that end, scholars are invited to submit papers on any subject relating to the climate crisis, with a focus on proactive solutions.
Topics may include but are not limited to:
- Feminism/gender & the climate crisis
- Intersectional environmentalism
- Politics & the climate crisis
- Race & the climate crisis
- Climate change & the law
- Media/journalism & the climate crisis
- LGBTQIA+ issues & the climate crisis
- Technological approaches to the climate crisis
- Ethical investments
- Neoliberalism & the climate crisis
- Environmental activism
Length: Individual paper abstracts should be no longer than 500 words. Papers which require the distribution of pre-prepared materials, such as drafts, videos, podcasts, posters, etc, will also be accepted.
Proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than 31 January 2021.
