Duck Family Graduate Workshop 2020
6th annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop
University of Washington, Seattle
May 13-15, 2020
On May 13-15, 2020, UW’s Center for Environmental Politics will host the 6th annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop for doctoral students working in the area of environmental politics and governance (EPG). Unlike previous years, this year’s workshop with be held online over zoom. The 2020 workshop follows on the highly successful in-person workshops that the Center has hosted in previous years. The annual EPG workshop provides a venue for doctoral students to present their work, receive feedback, and network with others working on similar issues.
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 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 active participants in the community of EPG scholars.
