Environment and Conflict: International Conference Organized by the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies

June 29, 2020, Liverpool Hope University, England.

Rising sea levels, droughts, bushfires, and other extreme weather events are exacerbating existing environmental stresses, and provoking unprecedented challenges to states and communities. These growing environmental challenges multiply the risk of social deprivation, political instability and war. As the international community struggles to find consensus on limiting carbon emissions, the challenges to peace and security that will arise in a warming world are only beginning to be understood. The aim of this conference is to explore the relationship between climate change and challenges to peace. To that aim, we are calling for papers from scholars, practitioners and activists on all the dimensions of environment and conflict including, among others: 

  • Security, intelligence and governance
  • Human rights, justice and law
  • Interlinked global challenges (displacement, food scarcity, etc.)
  • Urban settings
  • Management
  • Role of religious traditions and communities in the action for environmental protection
  • Civil society mobilization
  • Education
  • Expression and representation in literature and arts
  • Media and communication

Submission Deadline: April 1, 2020.

Historically Situated: History, Memory, and Place

October 16-18, 2020, Ticonderoga, New York

Fort Ticonderoga, in partnership with the American Battlefield Trust, seeks proposals for a special conference inspired by the bicentennial of the preservation of Fort Ticonderoga.

The Fort Ticonderoga Museum seeks proposals for new research, perspectives, and criticism on the broad history and practice of historic preservation. From an historic or contemporary point of view, what are the practical and philosophical challenges with preservation and restoration? How has the preservation and restoration of historic sites and buildings shaped history, and how will ongoing preservation efforts shape our future understanding of our past? How do monuments, writing, and memory preserve buildings, sites, and individuals that do not survive? What is the interplay between historic landscapes and the built environment? How do we manage our past with our present? How have historic landscapes, structures, and monuments been represented themselves in art, culture, and criticism?

We are interested in a wide variety of perspectives engaging a broad range of geographic and temporal examples from the United States and beyond and a range of disciplinary perspectives including, but not limited to, Art History, Architecture, American Studies, Architectural History, Historic Preservation, Memory Studies, Archaeology, Material Culture, and Conservation.

Submission Deadline: April 1, 2020.

International Policy Ideas Challenge 2020

Global Affairs Canada, in collaboration with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), is pleased to announce the fifth edition of the International Policy Ideas Challenge.  The objective of the program is to draw on the network of talented Canadian graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and early-career civil society researchers to identify concrete, innovative solutions to emerging international policy challenges faced by Canada.

The program offers applicants a chance to test their skills at translating academic expertise into policy language and insights. Applicants are invited to submit brief proposals. Ten winners will be given several months to consult with Global Affairs Canada “client” divisions and further develop their proposals into longer policy briefs, which will then be presented to Government of Canada officials in a day-long Ideas Symposium, hosted by Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa in late Fall 2020.

Each proposal should outline a trend or dynamic affecting Canadian foreign policy that applicants believe needs additional study. Proposals should sketch out preliminary policy recommendations bridging at least two of the three policy areas under Global Affairs Canada’s mandate - foreign policy, trade, and international assistance. Preference will be for ideas that fall under one of the themes indicated below, however, proposals related to other emerging issues and trends affecting Canada’s international policy priorities will also be considered.

Application Deadline April 17, 2020
