A conference entitled Ecological Resistance Movements: Religion, Politics, and Ethics will be held 10-11 November 1995, at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. The conference will examine a variety of environmental movements around the world, from radical environmentalists and environmental justice activists in North America, to peasants and indigenous peoples in less affluent countries who are engaged in struggles promoting ecologically sustainable lifeways. The conference will critically examine the way religious and ethical conceptions provide resources for the people engaged in these struggles, as well as examine the impacts of, and prospects for, these important movements. Among the prominent scholars to address these themes are Daniel Deudney of the University of Pennsylvania, Baird Callicott of the University of North Texas, and James Riker and William Cronen, of the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
The conference is co-Sponsored by the Wisconsin Institute: A Consortium for the Study of War, Peace, and Global Cooperation, UW--Madison's Global Studies and Environmental Studies Institutes, and UW--Oshkosh's Environmental Studies program.
