Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences Conference: “Many Shades of Green”
About the conference:
The 2010 Conference of the Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS) will be hosted at Lewis & Clark. The theme is “Many Shades of Green,” which reflects the growing diversity of the environmental movement and the spread of “green” thinking into new and varied venues. A bewildering profusion of green ideas are working their way through global politics and discourse as new groups enter into—and challenge—the traditional environmental movement. The conference seeks to bring together experts who will speak to this proliferation of difference, contention, and innovation in green rhetoric and practice.
