POLLEN 2024: Call for paper submissions

Carla Stoyanova | 23/11/2023 13:54:54 | external event

The Political Ecology Network (POLLEN) Organising Committee invites paper submissions for a panel proposal to its biennial conference taking place in June next year.

The POLLEN24 will be held on 10-12 June 2024 both online and on-site in three separate locations – Lima (Peru), Dodoma (Tanzania) and Lund (Sweden). Papers are invited for submission for a hybrid panel proposal in Lund and online, titled "Integrating ecology in political ecology research on agriculture".

"In this panel, we hope to contribute to a fruitful conversation about how to combine ecology with more traditional social science approaches to political ecology within the field of agricultural research," share Klara Fischer and Fabian Bötzl of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.

The POLLEN network is an umbrella organisation of political ecology researchers, groups, projects, networks and 'nodes' across the globe and seeks to provide a platform for the 'cross-fertilization' of ideas, where the world's many rich, diverse traditions can come together, discuss, and debate the latest developments in the field.

POLLEN invites paper submissions:
  • that engage theoretically and/or methodologically with ecological research in studies that take a political ecological approach to agriculture and agrarian change;
  • that engage social science and ecology for the purpose of contributing towards the understanding of farming systems and their change.
Submission process
If you would like to participate, submit your abstract (max. 200 words including title) to klara.fischer@slu.se or fabian.botzl@slu.se.

If needed, a selection of the submitted abstracts will be made. If you are included in the panel proposal, you will be notified by 12 December. The submission of the panel proposal to the POLLEN conference will follow on 14 December.

The deadline for submissions is Thursday, 7 December 2023.
