[EmergingEthnoNetwork] Students! Call for Papers! The Campus as Ecosystem and Backpack Ethnobiology

Please submit your abstracts to organizers of the session proposed for the 2012 Society of Ethnobiology meeting this April in Denver.

CALL FOR PAPERS: The Campus as Ecosystem and Backpack Ethnobiology

Student organizations shape biophysical and sociocultural conditions on university and college campuses. Student research into human-environment interactions within the ecosystems where campuses are located creates knowledge about ethnobiology, conservation biology, environmental science, environmental philosophy, geography, political ecology, and related disciplines. Backpack ethnobiology takes places within the same anthropogenic ecosystems where scholarship takes place. In this session, students discuss their on-campus research, covering a wide range of topics from applied archaeology to ethnoscience to conservation biology. The compilation of campus centered research in this session illustrates the value of examining our own geographies while simultaneously acting to enhance the integrity of the ecosystems that sustain us as members of academic communities.

Sponsored by Ethnobiology Letters

To participate, submit an abstract of 150 words to Cissy Fowler by February 8, 2012.

The Society of Ethnobiology Conference is April 11-14, 2012 at the Denver Botanic Gardens.
