Join us for the Fourth Annual EcoJustice and Activism conference and workshops March 19-21, 2015 at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, MI.

This year’s theme, Art, Activism, and EcoJustice Education aims to explore the ways the arts can focus public attention and responsibilities toward developing eco-ethical consciousness and action that challenges devastating social and ecological degradation occurring both locally and globally. We encourage a wide range of critical perspectives from within artistic, scholarly, and activist traditions and groups. These could include presentations, performances, or exhibitions around site specific art, insurgent art education, place-based art education, performance art, radical and guerrilla art, eco-art education, sustainable art, indigenous arts, anarchist arts and more.

We also welcome related presentations on animal welfare, environmental philosophy, climate change, ecofeminism and other gender studies, critical race theory, eco-pedagogy, eco-ability, post-humanism, anarchist studies, place-based education, critical animal studies, critical cultural studies, political ecology, peace studies, critical geography, indigenous studies, indigenous education, post/anti-colonial studies, critical literacies, critical pedagogy, urban studies, eco-philosophy, eco-democratic reforms, EcoJustice education, and critical disability studies.
