Duck Family Graduate Workshop 2017
3rd annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop
University of Washington, Seattle
May 17-19, 2017
On May 17-19, 2017, University of Washington’s Center for Environmental Politics organized the 3rd annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop for social science doctoral students working in the area of environmental politics and governance (EPG). This follows on the highly successful workshop that the Center hosted in 2015 and 2016.
These workshops provide a venue for doctoral students to present their work, receive feedback, and network with others working on similar issues. We invite select faculty from University of Washington and other universities to serve as resource persons.
Why the workshop? Understanding the governance and political aspects of environmental issues is critical for addressing the gamut of environmental challenges. The politics of governance perhaps has become an even more critical factor in the changed political milieu. The multi-disciplinary nature of the EPG research often makes it hard to share ideas, concepts, and research methods across relevant disciplines. We hope the annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop will help overcome these barriers and provide a multi-disciplinary venue for doctoral students to become participants in the community of emerging social science scholars working in the EPG area.
The Center for Environmental Politics is excited to organize this unique annual event focused on furthering graduate training and education. Should you have any questions, feel free to email Aseem Prakash.
