CFP Eric Wolf Student Paper Prize

The Political Ecology Society (PESO) announces the 2022 Eric Wolf Prize for the best article-length paper. The competition offers a great opportunity as it involves paid registration fees for the Society for Applied Anthropology annual meeting, a feature presentation of the paper at this meeting, and publication in the Journal of Political Ecology!

We seek papers based in substantive field research that make an innovative contribution to political ecology. Clear links to some specific set of political ecology ideas and literature is important. To be eligible for the competition, scholars must be no more than two years past the completion of their Master’s or Ph.D. degree. This includes scholars who have not yet received the Ph.D. and Master’s students. Multiple authored papers are considered as long as the first author meets the above criteria. Be mindful the prize is meant exclusively to support students and newly minted grads. Also, we cannot accept papers that are already under review at a journal.

The deadline for submission is September 5, 2022.

The preferred format for papers is electronic, i.e. Word or PDF. Please contact us, if you need to submit in some other format. Please anonymize your submission and use the style guidelines provided on the Journal of Political Ecology webpage: https://journals.uair.arizona.edu/index.php/JPE/about/submissions

As the winning paper will be published in the Journal of Political Ecology, the prize reviewers may request revisions before the item is published.

Electronic submissions and further queries should be sent to Dr. Elisabeth Moolenaar (emoolenaar@regis.edu)

Have you registered for the EASA biennial meeting yet?

The EASA biennial meeting will take place in Belfast from July 26 through July 29. Early bird registration opened on May 20th and will close the end of June.

Registration is by online form only and does not require instant payment. Your registration will be manually processed and an invoice with payment information emailed after a few days. Payment can be taken online by credit card or bank transfer, and invoices should be settled within 15 days.  

How much are conference fees? Early bird fees for f2f participants will be:
Concession member (those with gross annual income below €25,000): 160 GBP
Member: 230 GBP
Non-member: 330 GBP

This fee includes f2f and online access to four days of conference sessions (in 2018 there were more than 180 panels and labs to choose from). It also includes an opening drinks reception, 4 lunches and 6 tea/coffee breaks, access to online chat/networking tools and session recordings. The conference dinner/party ticket is a charged-for extra, to be booked at the time of registration.

Early Bird prices for F2F participants will cease on 20 June (standard fees will be 75 GBP more expensive).

There are no daily registration rates for this event. Day-rates have always been a way to ensure access for those with care obligations and other reasons which limit time away. However in the context of hybrid format and the global ecological crisis, we would encourage those who can only attend for a day to register for online participation.

Early bird fees for virtual participation will be:
Concession member (those with gross annual income below €25,000): 50 GBP
Member: 100 GBP
Non-member: 150 GBP

The registration fee for virtual participation includes online access to all sessions, access to session recordings and online chat/networking tools. The deadline for online registration is July 6, after this point it will not be possible to register for online attendance.

Early Bird prices for virtual participation will continue until 20 June, when prices will rise by 40 GBP.
